Sequencer One 



Gajlts ■ PAL/NTSC 

So you wanl to be a MIDI musician? This program Is a lully-lledged MIDI sequencer, antj can al»o 
Beqiyence Amiga sound samples- It's a very versatile program, but belore you rush to your computer lo 
have a look a1 it bear the lollowing In mind. 

Fo' one thing, you can only use MIDI if you have a MIDI inierlace plugged Into (he seiial port of your 
Amiga, and a MIDI Instrument or two connected to the interlace. It has proved Iroublesome to include 
Ihese with the issue - we did try a couple but they kept falling off the newsagent s shelves- 

Anyway, once you have il loaded, it will display a box ejcpiamlng in technical terms how the 
Sequencer uses memory- Just click on OK with the left mouse buMon. After Ihal. a flannel panel will dis- 
play information about the origins Of the program. Click on More to read on, or anywhere else Inside the 
box 10 move on. The best thing to do nevt Is to load an evampie song. Keep the right mouse buHon 
pressed, and move the mouse pointer lo the lop Of the screen (it should say FHes). A menu will drop 
down - move the mouse pointer down until the words Load Song are hrghhghled^ You can lei go of the 
mouse button now. 

A requester box will now appear (a panel that asks you to answer a question). After a few moments 
the contents of the disk will be displayed - click with the left mouse button on the songs drawer. Click 
again on the words ' A' Hip-hop , and then on OK. The song should toad. Click on the Play' button to Us' 
ten to it, and then have a good read of the Instructions inclt^ded with the free suppiemeni, writien by 
muaic maestro Matl Evans^ 



Stereo Master 

Microdeal ■ PAL only 

This is a demo! It does have most of Ihe features of the full-priced sample editor, but It cannot 
load or save sound samples. Instead, it has a sound sample built in, so you can play and experi- 
ment wllh II. Once loaded. It will display this sample In the upper area of the screen. To play it, 
just click on the play button with Ihe mouse. The play button is not labelled as such. It's located 
lowards the middle of the screen, along with fast forward and reverse - just like a tape recorder. 

The best way lo find out how to use the program is ev per I mentation. Most of the features will 
put up a requester box, explaining the function and asking you If you wanl to continue- 
There are also some menu opilons as weli: to access these, keep the right mouse button 
pressed and move the mouse pointer to the top of the screen, then down over the relevant menu. 
We hope you enjoy Ihe demo, and do walch out for a full review In a future issue.

The first thing It does afler you have loaded the program 
is ask you which resolution you want to use for your pic- 
tures- Note that the program defaults lo NTSC resolution 
(200 or 400 vertical lines) as opposed lo PAL (256 or 512 
vertical lines). Just click on the PAL button with xhe 
mouse to gel the higher resolution. 

Afler that little task is out of the way, Itie program 
will load (eventually - It s quite big). The best way to find 
out how to use it is to mess at>ou1 wtth the controls until 
you understand Ihem. 

It you need a more in-depth briefing on Ihls com- 
plete graphics package, then simple turn lo the Sound 
and Vision Supplement (Page 21) that's free with this 
issue of Amiga Format, for Ihe full instructions, as written 
by Da mien Noonan Ihe Editor. Don't be surprised H H 
takes a while to pick up the basics - but once you gel the 
hang of it you'll be amazed at Ihe visions you can create.

All. It>e warning on the Coverdl»k pages Ihal the

Due lo disk production difficulties, wo believed al

stand, misled people trying to use the sample on 
disk and we apologise for any confusion. 

RGB Studios would like to point out that, like 
all Real Things products, Sea Life is constructed in 
a progressive fashion which increases your hnowl'

In case you've never heard of (his frus(raLingly fun 
game 4which planei have you been on?) Lemmings is 
eonlrolled cniircly wiLh Lhe mouse. 

You use the lefi mouse button almosi exclusively, 
so jus( leave lhe righi buaon alone unless ihe game 
tells you (o use ir for something ^ipccific, Don'l worry 
[hough, because this only happen:^ in-beiween pbying 
differeni levels. 

The idea is simple enough - you have lo guide all 
lhe Lemmings (from wherever Lhey slan off iheir on- 
screen journey) towards home. The homes, (hough, are 
always on lhe opposite side of lhe screen, li can be 
quile tricky to negotiate all of the obstacles because 
you have a minimum number of lemmings to save on 
each level. If you don'l save enough ol them, (hen you 
have to play the level again. Oh no! 

Once Lemmin)»s has llnished loading il will display 
an option screen. You can't do muuh troni here excepi 
Quit (highly unlikely} or choose one player to ge( on 
with (he game. As you fmish the levels, access codes 
will be displayed - do \*Tite them down - so that it's 
easy lo get a1 the Inter levels. Well, it's easy enough to 
gel ;ii them, but just downright fiendish to try and 
complete them. 

Another screen will ^op up. showing a map of the 
level, to give you some idea of whai you've got to ikt. 
Il also tells you what percentage of lemmings ih.iT

you need lo save, and how many of thciti you gel (o 
play with. It also tells you how much lime you have 
left. Simply click on The left mouse button lo continue 
(ttie game will then pause because n needs to load 
more data from the disk). 

The theorv' of playing Lcnimings is simpiiciiy in 
Itself- At the botlom left of the screen are se\eral icons. 
each one depicu a lemming doing a dirfercni task. 
Above these icons are nunibers. these show you how 
many times that you cun use thji panicular icon. Just 
click on an it, and then on a It-mmmg jnd ihey'H stan 
doing that job. 

The icon> ai the f^ left are for controlling the (low 
of L.emmings - tlie minus symbol slows down the rate, 
while the plus icon will speed them up (useful when 
you're running low on time and some of the lemmings 
are not even oti the screen yet). 

Following on fmni ihose, (he tasks that lemmings

gelling nd of BliH.J^ers|; Blockers slop other lemms 
from going past; Builders build bridges with 12 
sections ((bey clang when they're about to fmish); 
Hashers knock horiztrntal holes (hrough obs(acles: 
Miners dig diagonal holes; and Diggers, this lot scoop 
vertical holes out- 

The paw pnnts icon is for pawsmg (he game, and 
the nuclear mushroom cloud will tuni all ihc< lemmings 
that jre kU miu IJombcrs - a very spectacular way to 
end a hopeless game. To the nght of iIk icons is a 
map, which will scroll the main screen if you click on 
It. A faster way to move around lhe level is to move 
the mouse pointer to the left or nghi screen edges, and 
then press the right button. 

Easy in practice? D<m'i you believe ill The secret 
of Lemmingx is knowing when and where to activate 
them. If they arc lefl to their own devices all lhey will 
do is just wander about, bouncing off objects and 
falling down holes. These guys have no idea of self 
prescr^aiion at atl. 

There are several types of natural hazard in the game. 
The most common one is simply falling off the bottom 
of the screen. Next there's falling too far flemms can 
fall short distances without injury, but then: is a hmii>. 
Nei^t are ihe imps, nasty moving objccis which can 
sqiuiih lemms ftai. li\ a tough life. 

Finally, lo all (hose of you who really do like lo be 
first at sending in access codes - don't bother with the 
demo ones. No pri/cs will be awarded, because we've

COVERDISK 




Your 




1. Always write-protect your disk. Move the tab so a hole is showing. 

2. Copy the Coverdisk and use the copy, not the original. This may sound like a compli 
cated task suitable only for techno buffs, but it's surprisingly simple to do, just follow 
the simple instructions for copying the disk which are given below. 

3- Read the instructions when using the programs. 



Backin 



our Disk 



There are two ways of making a 
copy of your disks, and this is 
the easy one. Don't be daunted 
by the fact that you need to use 
the Shell or CLI: it's actually a lot 
easier than you might think. 
Just follow these simple steps. . . 




i1I«>l\<*'l Tiff it* 



1 Lood youi Workbench dish. Open Ihc disk, find the kon 
fhDl itifs Shell or CLI ond dovble-dkk on il.

and prff» the Return key.

Il means the diik you won I lo <opy, so put Ihc Cov«rdiik 
in ihe drive ond press the Return key.

the Coverditk, idling you how for II hos gof. Then if will 
Dsk you lo intoH the "Destinatian^ diik. Put Ihe d^ik you 
woni to <opy your Cavcrdisk anto in Ihe df Ive and pre; s 
Ihe Return key^ Note thai the disk does nal need to be

more limes when ihe Amig? gtks for Ihem. When it soyt 
^ Disk copy Finished'' jus I type in; 

to get out of lh« Shelf or CLI. You moy have to put the 
Workbench disk in again. Now your fopy h readyL 



DISK PROBLEMS? 

It you have a problem with the disk - and you re sure the disk is In 
full working order - then you may need a JItile help. If you ring us on 
any Tuesday, and ask to speak to Pal McDonald, he will do his best 
to help you. Please understand, giving this sort o1 advice is time-con- 
5ummg and we are very busy people, so only call If you really have to 
and do be considerate it we can 1 talk to you just then. If the problem 
IS particularly complex it is better to send it to us In written delalL It 
will then be dealt with In the Workbench pages of tfw magazine. 



BE CAREFUL! 

We have done our best to check 
that the programs on the AmFga 
Formal Coverdisk ^re Simple fo use 
and have no known viruses. We 
cannot usually answer complex 
leJephone quenes on ri^e software 
(see the Disk Problems? box) and 
we do not accepi Jiabi/ity for any 
consequences vf using Ihe numer- 
ous programs thai are on ihe disk. 



COPYRIGHT 

Unless il is specifically stated, the 
programs on the Coverdisk are not 
in the public domain and ihe copy- 
right remains wilh Ihe author of the 
program. 

Because some of the programs 
on the coverdisk are not FD. seJIing 
or distributing them without the 
author's specific permission Is 
against ihe laws of copynghi. 



Disk not virorkin 



We duplicate over 160.000 disks every month. Out of all those, obviously a few 
wi]l be faulty. If the disk or any of the programs will not load or run properly, 
there may be a problem. Don't panic! 

First try using the DiskDoctor utility on your Workbench disk lo rescue it 
before sending if off for a replacement. In-full details of DiskDocfor can be found 
m the user's manual that came with your machine. 

However, [f your Coverdisk is faulty, you should send it back INCLUDING AN 
SA£ for a free replacement within a month of the cover date to:

Commodore team up 
vfith Amiga Format on 



major ad cam 



Increa-singly close ties between Commodore and 
Amiga Formal are rellecied in the latest ad campaign 
for the Amiga. There are full-colour advcils appearing 
m national ma^a/mt^s and newspapers last month and 
this month to follow up from Commodore's Christmas 
TV ad campaign. 

The TV ad features the song "Sunshine on a Rainy 
Day* and shows how the Amiga brightens up your 
world, ending with the tine "Brighter by far". The full- 
colour magazine ad follows up with the line "Have you 
>»een the lightV" and includes a picture of an Amiga 
wiih Amiga Fonnat lying next to it. "Why is it every- 
one wants an Amiga?" starts off the ad, moving on 
to a descriplion of the machine and the Cartoon 
Classics pack. "And lo make ihe most of your 
machine, check out Amiga Formal" it continues, 
"li 's a wicked mix of news, reviews, advice and 
hot tips, showing you exactly what's what." 

Apart from the fuel that the ad will feature 
on the first ever full-colour page in adult 
comic Viz. it's also notable for two other 
rcasons- Not only is it evidence of the growing ties 
betwei^n Commodore and AniiKU Fonma. which have 
been increasing since Amiga Format organised and 
gave its name to the highly successful World of 
Commodore show, but also we believe it to be the 
largest ever advertising campaign to be lauuLheJ by a 
home -com puler maga/me. 

Once again, Amiga Fornwi. the world's biggest- 
selling Amiga magazine, is setting new records! And 
we've jusi got time to say hello to any new readers 




who have come to the magazine after se^faig ihe adver- 
tisements. Welcomo to the brightest and best home 
computer magazine there is. (he world's largest club 
for Amiga owners! 






A500 Plus memory 
configurarions confirmed 

Funher to last month's exclusive in-depth Icyik at the new ASOO Plus, we've man- 
aged to confirm a few detaiN about memory expansions. It is now apparent thai you 
can have an increased maximum of 2Mb of chip RAM as part of the 9 Mb total. 
Existmg A50(l 'irap-dcKir' RAM expansions are fine for use on the AMMI Plus, with 
the proviso that only S12K of memory will be recognised by the new machine; so 
larger expansions are a shade redundant. 

Already several firms are producing special RAM 
expansions for the AM)0 Plus, though we're still 
wailing for Commodore's official A5(ll 1Mb expan- 
sion, phoenix have announced a range of expansions, 
kicking off with a 512K expansion expandable to 
IMh using 256-by-4 DRAM chips and costing 
£34.99, Its complete big bnjther,thel Mb RAM mod- 
ule, will cost £49.99. Both expansions add lo the 
Chip RAM total of the machine. 

Cenireso/u meanwhile, arc pulling a number of 
new RAM expansions into shops around Ihe country 
in time for Chrisimas. under (heir Addxtra brand 
name. The 1Mb model for the A500 Plus will cost 
£49.99 and a 4Mb unpopulated board is available for 
£,"19.99. with DRAM chips coming in packs of four 
(512K| for £5.99 each. Keep a look out for ihem in 
your local siorc.

A500 Plus compatibility: 
the continuing story 

AVe were expecting a flood of details coming in about m<v^ software that won't 
work on an ASOO Plus, hut we've not had any such thing. We hjvc. however, had 
details passed on to us by irade maga/me CTW of a number of titles which an mde- 
pendeni tester has found not to work: iht^se are printed m lull vrn Page 18. 

In last issue's "Inside the new Amiga: compjiibility^ we listed all the titles so far 
krwwn nm to work. We also included a number of brand-new games which we hod 

tested in (he pre-release version and found not to work, and we 
can confirm that they do now work in the final ver?iii>n. This 
includes such lilies as Ihe excellent Jomn Fomi HohtKod and

"'1 wish then? were Amiga shows like this in the

Gremlin were not far behind with Iheir four-player 
Liiiiis 2 competitions attracting a good deal of interest. 
Micro Prt>se were also in a racing miKKi. wiih Formuh 
/ Grand Prix on big-screen play and chequered flags 
picking out their stand. Electronic Arts were sucking to 
[he buj^iness in hand, with the opponuniiy to try Deluxe 
Paint JV with lots of people watching your efforts on 
their large-screen display: and Populous 2. just Tmished 
cm the Saturday of ihe Show, getting the attention ii 
ihorDughly deserves. 

Psygnosis were getting pa^&ers-by heavily involved 
by having a game of Leandet played on a huge screen. 
while Mindscape sal behind rolling video demos, and 
the Bitmaps^ stuff attracted a considerable amount of 
attention. Virgin had all their wares out on display, 
including the new Space Shuttle Simulator, and Jimmy 
White was wandering around, signing copies of his 
Snooker game. Some rather more glamourous celebri- 
ties adorned Ihe System 3 stand, where you could get 
your phnto taken with a lop Page 3 model. Commenii 
like "Can I have a look at your Fuz:haltV' were not 
probably appreciated- 

It wasn^t a big show for new game announcements, 
with the Gu-isimas line-ups mostly confirmed, but it 
was a great chance to decide for yourself what would 
be the best this year, li was, however, an exciting event 
for the more serious side of the machine, and full 
details follow on these pages. 

All in all, il was an e?^citing, mtercsting and very 
popular event: the doors had to be closed in the mom- 
mg on both the Saturday and Sunday as the hall was 
packed to capacity. And it's a big hall. The queues out- 
side were kept entertained by jugglers and an amazing 
robot daticcr. 

Of the 36.000 people who flooded through the 
doors during the course of the shoWn very few were 
CM or PC owners. With the success of this vear's 
event, both among the visitors and with the exhibitors, 
it's looking good for an even bigger and better event 
nexi year: and, who knows, by then il might simply be 
Ihe Amiga Show! 




A690: the first look 

Many people misled it, lurking quietly on the 
Commodore siand in ijs non-dcscnpl case: but the 
Afi9tl CD-ROM drive, which will hrmg CDTV titles lo 
the Amiga, was seen for the llrst time in Ihe UK. It's 
an ugTy object, larger and more unwieldy than you 
u'litild expect. Release is now expected in February, 
wiih the price hoped to drop as low as £259, The cur- 
rent version will only work with Kicksiart 2: 
something of a surprise, as the CDTV has a 1,3 operat- 
ing system installed. But this is one of the wrinkles 
which will be ironed out beforc final release.

by the dominance of the A500 m ihe UK: over in ihc 
Slates, most Amigas are very worthy and hard-worliJng 
2UO0s and 3000n. but ihcy were all ready for ri. wuh 
some of the most exciting A.'iOO hardware develop- 
moiits ever seen. 

The world premier of a new accclcraior caused a 
fcw raised eyebrow^: (he 40MH/ t>8040 accclcraior 
will be iticorporated into :i revised Series U 
A500HD8+. giving an all-m-onc cimibmaiion of ihc 
best hard drive we've ever tested along with RAM 
expansion capacity of up to SMb and a iop-no<ch 
accelerator. That's senous A500 expandability! The 
new combined unit will be a\ailable early nexl year 
and a price is nor yet set: an upgrade ^ ill be offered lo 
existing HD owTters. because the ncv, unil i& sli^Uy 
altered to accommodate the accelerator. 



A UK price drop for the basic Series II A500HD8+. 
down £100 to £399. was also announced. This will of 
course gel you a basic 32Mb model, but w iih no added 
RAM but II IS an excellent opponumty for any neiA 
Amiga owner that is contemplating getting a hard 
drive. There was some equally ag:gressive pnce tagging 
for the new DSS (Digital Sound Studioi sampler, 
now onlv £59. 

GV'P arc now badging an adapted version of 
Voncx's ATonce PC emulator, which will be available 
as a plug'in card to go on (he expansion port on the 
»6c of the Amiga, raihcr than underrtcaih. It can also 
be combined w jth the HD8+ hard drive. 

Aiso on show were the amazing 1V24 24-bil frame- 
buffer card and the very rapid G -Force 68040 
accclcraior for the A.HIOO, currenily the fastest there is. 
We hope to review boih soon-

Programmers' joy! 

One of the major new releases of the Show for hard- 
core Amiga users was ihc latcM version of HiSofl's

animation system, which makes it possible to grab 
images using ihe Vidi digitiser and use them in your

Ihmg like Deluxe Pamt l\ is that it incorporates all the

Rombo have also announced a clever new adaptor 
for ibeir digitiser thai allows you lo use Ihe expansion

port, giving double the speed. It costs £69,95 and 
comes with enhanced versions of the Vidi-Amiga and

ALso (in the way from Aegis are Presentation Master, an all-new system for creating business presemaiions

SCAIA moves onwards (and downwards!) 



SCALA, currcndy believed to be the UK's besi-scllmg 
desktop video program for ihe Amiga, is going from 
stieng^ to strength as it finds its way into a number of 
ioieresting applieaiions and becomes available in an 
Amiga 500 version. 

SCALA 500 is aimed more directly at home video 
tiitmg than its sophisticated, professional big brother. 
Digital Vision have done an excellent job on eutting 
It down, while retaining the case of use and high- 
quality results associated with the SCALA name. 
Unfortunately, no price is yet available. 



Meanwhile, you can expect to see SCALA- 
produced preu^taiions ^^aring all around you in (he 
near future. Digital Vision are having great results 
pushing the Amiga into corporate environments. 

And if you're in London, try and look out for the 
new London Trartspori information shops, where 
screens produced on SCALA will be runnmg con- 
standy. It^s a really exciting lime for the Amiga, 
which is the ideal platform for information systems 
such as this one.

One of the potential problems with the A50U Plus is 
that the new conTiguraiion of Ihc trap-door slot means 
that normal ASOO version of the Vorlex ATonce 
PC emulator will not wnrk on Ihc new syslem. Vortex, 
a German firm, have been bcavering away on the 
problem and have come up with a rtew. improved 
AitfJPluh version. 

It's a complete AT emulator, as before, with Ihe PC 
emulation running a.s a ia.sk under AmigaDOS. which 
keeps everything nice and tidy The board iniludes the

well a& 512K of fast RAM and a Mx.ki:t fur an o|Uional 
80C287-12 maths co-processor. The board is available 
now, costs £199 and we^ll be testing one in Ihe nejiLt 
issue of Amiga Formal. 

One curious sideline on the PC emulator story is 
that we've just heard thai PC owners will MK>n be able 
to buy an Amiga emulator! The board comes from

1 St Down and a month to go! 

At long last the full potential of 
Amencan Football has been recognised 
and harnessed for the Amiga. Electronic 
Arts have announced that they arc 
converting John Madden' i FoothaH. 
hopefully in lirrte for this ycv's 
Supert>owl XXVL The game is being 
convened and upgraded froio the Sega 
MegadnvL- title. Using ihc latest player 
siaLs, Ihe teams' potential and perfor- 
mances should be as realistic as passible, 
with you making those vital play calls 
that turn games. 

John Madden' s Football is die bcsi- 
selling US Sega title of all time - even 
beating Sega's own figurehead. Sonic 
the Hedgehog- The game reflects every 
aspect of Grid Iron from pitch cortdi- 
tions down to audible calls at the line of 
scrimmage. And even at the demo stage 
it already looks like being a cracking 

implementation of the game, being easy to ploy bui crammed full of tactical possibilities. 

The <^uality of Ihc Sega game can be seen in Ihe fans it attracts; World League Champions the London 

Monarchs and Soul superstar Barry White are self-confessed addit;!^, EA are promising that John Madden's will 

be even better on the Amiga using 60 on-screen colours and a revised player interface. 

The project is being handled by Electronic Aas" in-housc coding team, who have turned the title into an Amiga 

reality in less dian six months. With luck the game will be available in late January, so we could all be enacting 

this year's Superbowl before a ball is kicked in Ihe Hubert H Humphrey Metrodome. Grid Iron fans should check 

out our in-dcpth preview next month.

A590 troubles with WB2 

You'll have problems installing Workbertch 2 on your 
A590 hard drive because the in\ia]l procedure specifi- 
cally asks for the Workbench 1.3 disks. You can. 
however, gel round this Either i:hcai by renaming your 
Workbench 2 disks to 'Workbench I.V and 'hxiras 
}3\ in which case you'll have to tidy up at the end by 
copying across a lot of the new icons, or use Hd on die 
HDlnsiall program, replacing references to the old 
Workbench di.sks widi the names of the new ones. 
Either way. run the new Fountain program afterwards 
to put the new fonLs on your hard drive. ITianki to

FORTY BIRDS AND 



UNLIMITED PREY 



If there's a modern military aircraft not included in Birds of 
Prey, it's probably not worth flying. 

So whether you choose to be a Western or a Soviet pilot, 



^^"fS 




£34.99 

flying a fighter or a bomber you can do it all in one game. 

Each of the different mission types, ranging from Aerial 
Reconnaissance and Interception to Bombing Raids and Troop 
Drops is open-ended. The possibilities are unlimited. 

Choose from a vast array of military might including the 
F- 1 1 7A Stealth Rghten the Tornado F MK. 3, the BAG Harrier 
Gr Mk.3 and the Mig-29 Fulcrum. 40 planes in totaL 

Whichever you opt for, you'll be confronted by a 
ftHghteningly accurate simulation of state-of-the-art warfare. 

And whichever mission you choose, you'll find yourself flying 
into a real-world environment of continuous action taking place 
on land and sea. 

Before you take off however, you must plot the positions of 
your enemies and conjure up strategies to destroy tfwn. Then 
you arm your aircraft from a bewildering array of hi-tech 
weaponry. 

Once in the air. complex mathematics calculate the 
maximum limits your choice of aircraft could realistically attain, 
given it's weight, payload and aerodynamics. 

Four years in the making. Argonaut Software have devised 
what Jez San describes as "the most realistic and dynamic world 
ever created". 

Take off.

Ihcrc's been many tasts of this oser ihc lasl 
decade - ihe end can come vciy quickly. 

Underlying ihis i'% [he consiani belief thai 
VOOTKi or lalcr tompuimg is poinj; lo hciomt- a 
proper mas'* inieresi ihing: like hill ot vnk*o. 
In Japan, we aiL- lulJ, lhcre\ a game^ LcmsoL' 
by Ihc %ideti and TV in jhmist every house- 
hokJ, Will ihul happen over here? And if so. 
whdi kind of machine K n thai will he iherc? 

Talk nimadays U of IV compjhhle oompui- 
er* and ^ames cimsolev. PC^s arc ihe standard 
business compuicr. There's millions ol them 
aU over the country and aduhs are increasingly 
buying them, perhaps to bring worik home lo 
but also to keep ihe kids L-nlcitamed. Wisdom 
m Ihc UK Icisun'-compulin)! mdusiry is ihal 
PC' games are poing In heci'mc big 

Games consoles: well, if you just want to 
pluy arcade games at home, what could be 
bcuer? ITiey arc cheapish. ea^y to use, garner 
tome on cartndj:es funcopyable in the home: 
an advantage for iIil' indusiryl. They arc read- 
ily available ihrough ,i loyshop. and a new 
generation of consoles, based an>uod (.'ooipacl 
DisL's offenn}! a wh<ile lot more than just 
games, are on the way. 

So these arc the things cotKcmlng ihe 
nuiustry. Ami iii Ihe meantime, what happened 
that almost t:aujihi ihem all by surprise? The 
Year of the Amigii. Ihai's whji. 

tl slurled iilHtut the middle ot lusi year. Ihc 
/tiiiiiiufi pack lor Chrisimas l*)S9 brought 
larger numbers ol new Aioiga owners into ihc 
fold than ever, (iruwth continued and ihu 
v\mi^a was cooling iniu late 1990 looking like 
a hot favourite to be the biggeM-sellmg com- 
pulcr of the big-buying *ieu-son. 

Whereas before, many games had been 
devehipcd *hi the 16-cokHir ST and then 
ported lo the Anngii. now developers were 
working on the Amiga with full 32-co1out 
game graphics and stere<^Nampled solhiU. ilien 
portmg cut-down versions over to (he Atari. 

In March IW|, ihe first IMh Amiga pack 
was announced. Hy the middle of the year, 
more than MXI.fXK) people m the UK owned 
AmigaN. And ihroughoui Ihe year, sales of 
Amiga games dominated the charts, making 
up as much ds M) per cent of all gariK?! sold, 

l^n Chrisimas. the Amiga - and the 
Cartoon Classics pack - is expected to outsell 
all .«hef bimie compiiler^. There will be more 
than 2(MU«HJ nc** Amiga owners hy Spnng 
1992. hnngmg Ihe UK liHal to more than 
700,00(1 But what about m the fuiurc? 

T1ir<iueluMit Iht' industry. tI's uidely agreed 
Ihis was the >ear ol (he Amiga: s<i much so 
that the indusii> newspaper Conxfrntrr Trtidr 
WetkJy de>uled a special issue to contcmpJai- 
tng iis success ^ci even that was ctmcenied 
noi simply wiih analy^ng the past: the iHhcr 
question was hou lon^ coulJ the Amiga last. 
and whai uoutd be r»ext? 



Yes, yiHi guessed it: more discussions of PCs 
dfid consoles, Thew dominaie the thmking of 
the UK sofiwarc industry, C<hisoIc manufac- 
mrey^ like Sega and Nintendo, who picvn»usly 
kepi tight conirol over wIhi wrote software for 
their machincv have opened things up so con- 
sole versions of bjg Amiga games iLeittminj^s 
for insianceJ are now a possibility. And every- 
one's doing PC vcniions. Not selling them in 
quanlily, maybe, but doing them anyway. 

Now I kmiw I'm pretty biased, but I reckon 
the Amiga has now, finally, arrived in its 
rightful position ai the top of the trt-e, and it's 
TWt going to disappear again overnight. Used 
to rapid changes in leehtKiUigy. the computing 
industry forgets the Amiga has been arc»und 
sinec 1985. and it's taken sin years for iLs 
suppim to grow and flourish to the cuirem 
position Now u's here, it's going lo stay. 

But svhat about those nval machines. 
Would an Amiga owner prefer a games eon- 
S4ile7 I don't think so. Sure, mosi Amiga 
owner\ plav gamcv ihat's usually Ihe main 
rca.son tftey have one. But Ihe Amiga is more 
than a eames machine: for years every Amiga 
sold has come ^Aith one version or anoiher of 
Dtiu.xt Paint, an example of creative potential 
of a real home computer. And a real compnicr 
with a real keyboard is s<i much nuire useful 
ihan a mere games machine- 
Will pei)ple prefer to buy PCs for the 
home' Well PCs arc an archaic teehiK>logy, 
oM half as suphislicated as the Amiga. PCs are 
gelling cheaper but only with ihe expensive 
VGA graphics sijindard ean you get games to 
nval the Amiga s. Bven then, you have to 
worry about extra plug-m cards to get decent 
stereo, and there's no one standard. Amiga 
busmen software can take files from all the 
sumlard PC word processors, databases and 
spreadsheets and all you need is a £2^ pr^v 
gram called CnnsDOS for the Amiga to be 
able to read the data straight Irom a PC-disk. 
The Workbench 2 i»peratmg system m new 
Amiga:* is as good as the expensive add-on 
Windows system on the f*C: and all serious 
siiftware wt^rks with it. The PC simply cannot 
compeie m lemis iif pnce for perl'ormance. 

So Mhal of the futurt? Can ^e set a date on 
how long the Amiga will last? The Amiga is 
the l^st of the Home Computers. The three 
M-bil machines, the Spectrum, the Amsirad 
CPC and the Ci'mmiKJon; 64. aiv grt^wmg old 
and fading, along with the waning Atari ST. 
The wijmcTs are. in a sense, ngbi: consdk-s 
v^ill grow in popularity and PCs wdl get 
cheaper, more flexible and useable, and begin 
to sell for use in Ihe home But this will make 
the Amiga stn.>nger. not weakcr. 

Becausc a standard PC of M)me kind is 
going to take over, ni^-one is ever again likely 
(o develop a computer targeted spccirically at 
use in the home. The Amiga is the last home 
computer. Since it's cun^^ntly also the best 
small computer, ^md people want u> buy com- 
puters not games machines, that means it's 
going to be around for a \s hile. And if it keeps 
improving - which on ihe evidence of this last 
year, ii is dtiing lasier ihan ever before - it's 
going to be ai the lop for even longer. Here's 
toonexcelleni 1492? © 



It's been a big year for the Amiga. Not only 

has it come to dominate the home 

computer industry in Britarn, but itis also 

undergone some immense changes for the 

better. Damicn Noonan encourages you 

to sit back, relax and reflect with him on the 

year's biggest events, both for the Amiga 

and for the computer industry in general...

floppies And rt'int'mhvT. because CDs u^c dtg- 
iial inlormmion, ihc^'re ideal forcomiiuier use. 

So whul use is all this cMra space? Well, for 
Lenain ^urpi'iscs. none at all Arcade sTyk 
games, Jikc Ruitihi'iv hhmils. H'thiKint it t-ir\l 
Simmnii. are desi^ncJ very eleverh to work 
Miihin I he 1 1 mils ol RAM. the tniemiil nieinor> 
suira^e area ol the computer, and wouldn't 
gain greatly by having lois ofcKira room. 

But anylbing that ts very dependent on 
i^Niphics <ukI leM while noi being uk> depen 
iloiil on speed and the nhv]t>us example is 
adveniure games, tike tfu Siirci of Monkf\ 
hhnui lAdl easils be able lo take advantage 
of aM the t'\trd space, Wuh ^1A) Megabytes to 
play with, vou haM- nxim fur hc;ips more pic- 
lures, jnrmalions. ie\l and e\en sampled 
sounds, Aiul this opens eromioijs pt-ts^ihilmes 

ll would always ha>e been possible on a 
ciinipuier as pottcrlul ;is ihc Aniigj u- ha\e. 
lor example, an encycbpoedu tii «ddlife thji 
when you locjked up "Aardvark" would itil you 
all you need to know in wiwds. whde also 
being ^ble lo show vou an ammalion of the^

So CI) Morai-t^ hav the advamape of very high 
capacuv. which niAe^ it possible to do things 
on a eompuier you might previously onK have 
done Ml a biHik. But ii also has the advantages 
of what s known as 'multiniedM , i^luch any 
conipuier guru will tell you is the Ne\l Big 
Thing m compuiing. The essence i"f this is 
computers are heller at seining through and 
rmdmj; mfomiaiion than humble humans. 

tl bnngs jjl The advantages o\ the boring 
old computer daiaba.se to inieresting u^es. So. 
for instance, while you could simply bnjwsc 
ihrough >our \nimdl F-ncvclopacdia from A to 
/. vou cou!d also use it io pick out ibm^s of 



mieresL If you wanted to know about animals 
that live in Australia. t>r mammals that la) 
e^f s. you could gel ii lo pick those out. 

Or if you know thai a particular animal 
looks a bit like a hon<e with a big nose, bui 
\iHi can't remember vshal il's *.-alled. \ou 

■ w 

could look through pictures of hor^e-like crea- 
tures until you find (he one >ou wani, dien Imd 
out all abnul it And the beayty of doing ii with 
J computer is Ihai a well-designed program 
can make it all e^sy. presenimg information on 
the -^crcen js ^ords or 3s pictures, for vou to 
find vour viav through just b) pointing at the 
thing you want. 

The bare hones of it mav m.»t sound entirelv 
thnlhng. but ihe potential lor CD-ba.sed eom- 
puier s*iftwarc IS enormous, CD-KOM. as it's 
known (RUM means 'rcad-onJ> memoiy" and 
isjusi stulf stored on disk thai \ou wdl use but 
not actually change) has been gn>wing quietly 
for s^inie lime. Y^iu'vc been able to buv. for 
example, a whole year's wonh t^^ fiuitfthon or 
Timt's articles on CD-ROM. Tn»uble is, \ou'd 
need an cvpcnsive dnve and a PC to plug tl 
into, and all you gel is texi. 

CD IS now about to take off m a big, big 
wa). Both the CD'TV fmm Commodore and 
the forthcoming CDI s\siem from Philips 
represent one end of the market, aimed at non- 
computer users. Thai"s whv the CDTV 
pTcJends to be a Mdco player the idea is thai 
people will see it as either a kind of video 
IXKik, or as an ^inter^frxe enieiiainmeni\ m 
oiher words, a video you uke pan m rather 
than just sitting back and waichmg. Thev don 'I 
need to know about it being a computer 

The exciting thing for all us Amiga lans is 
thai we'll get our slice of the action, Harly in 
1992. the Aft90 CD-ROM drive for the Amiga 
will go on sale, meanrng we can run any 
CDT\' st>fiware. This wdl not onlv make the 
Amiga the first home computer to have CD, ii 
als^i iiK'jns thai wc will ha\e ready and lAait- 
ing the largest range of CD-based software 
then; is. ihe CDTV range. 

And when the CD-ROM dri^e for the 
Amiga appears. lAe Amiga owners will not 
onl> be jt the spearhead of the CD resolution 
with the first h^>nk: c<.mipuleT to have CD: we 
could alMJ decide Its future. CD games in par- 
licular. if they're to fulfil the potenttal, are 
going to be expensive to produce. What the 
games publishers need to know is whether 
they can sell enough copies to justify the 
investment. The fact that >ou can't pirate CD 
games will help: but that's not the whole storv. 

A weird new- idea like CDTV is going lo 
lake a while to catch on with the general pub- 
lic. So far. despite a massive ad campaign, less 
than 6.IKX) CDTVs have been Kiught in the 
UK- But with 7(W.fKKI Amiga owners out 
there. that\ a real market, and as s4x>n as the 
Amiga gets CD. the game producers will be 
jumping onto the bandwagon. 

Il's going to be expensive, at an>und £.MK> 
for the CD drive. Bui it could be worth n. to be 
there when ii happens When ihe CD dnve 
appear* we'll bring you the ^Aholc siiwy. In ihe 
meantime if you want to know more get hold 
of Issue 24 from i>ur back issues dcpanmeni 
and ha\e a giKxJ read- See vou m the future! 



Here^ just some 
examples of what CD 
software is like... 





INTERACTIVE 
MOVIES 

They're coming, but not 
just yet. Best example so 
far Is On -Line's Psycho 
Kilter, which uses 6iqi~ 
lised photographs and 
hi-ti soundtrack^ The 
game s a bit lacking in 
play, but i\ was developed 
entirely on the Amiga 
AitMhetr desktop v>deo 
system and shows how 
easy it could be to create 
some feat movie- like 
games. Look out too for 
their Hound of (he 
BaskervlUes. a much bel- 
ter attempt. 






The CDTV finally went on sale in June after 
months of delays and speculation. It 
doesn't look remotely like an Amiga, but 
really it is: and as Dainien Noonan 

explains, its what CDTV could give back to 
the Amiga that makes it so exciting... 




INTERACTIVE KIDS' BOOKS 

A Bun tor Barney is narrated by ex-Doclo* Who »ctor Tom Baker and 
takes the form of a kiod of point-anO^hck acJvemxjre tor children. 
There s some lovely graphics and sourxj. wtth interesting surpHses

REFERENCE BOOKS 

The Hutchinson's Encyclopaedia, one of two CDs 
you get free with the E499 CDTV, shows how graph- 
rfiS and sound samples make reference more 
interesting. Atlases, other encYClopaedias and cook- 
ery books are other examples. 



GRAPHICS 

CD storage has great potential for providing large 
quantities of raw melerlel. as with (he CDTV coilec- 
tton ot Eadweard Muy bridge's lamous slop-motion 
photographs o1 moving people, a really encellenl 
source for animators. 





AMIGA GAMES 

Porta of AmlQa games wilL be common m the early 
days and won't interest Amiga owners too much. 
Lemmings comes Iree wilh Ihe CDTV, olher popular 
Irtles Include Xenon T and Ihe Fa/con tllghl sims- 



CD GAMES 

The Case ot the Cautious Condor is the t>esf evampte 
10 date, a graphic adventure that was a huge hit on 
the weird Japarvese FM Tovms computer. Secret ot 
Monkey Island 2 on CDTV is one Of our high hopes.

EDUCATION 

There's plenty of colouring books and the like tor 
kids, as tte\\ as the Fun School 3 and 4 series, bul 
these don't go far beyond the Amiga equivalents. 
More exciting is Virgin s ^orth Polar expedition, a 
phenomenal interactive replay of a genuine explo- 
ration with heaps of educational value. 

KID'S BOOKS 

The Tale of Peter Rabbit Is jusi one example of story- 
books presented with nice graphics and narration: 
individual words can be spelt out and explained. 




ORDINARY BOOKS 

Advanced Military Systems Is a graphjcs-led coffee- 
table book on military hardware. Other less 
convincing examples of the genre include the com- 
plete works ol Shakespeare and the Bible. 

AMIGA GAMES PLUS 

Sim City for Ihe CDTV la a good example: it's basi- 
cally the game we had on the Amiga, but reworked 
w^h some new ideas. It also features what will 
beconve common on CD games: proper hi^fl sound, 
recorded In a studio, playing in the background. 

KARAOKE 

The CDTV 14 already being sold as the complete 
Karaoke machine. There's a whole collection of discs 
with song tracks on and the words are presented on 
screen for you to loitow.

MUSIC 

CDTV can play audio and CO+Graphics discs. 
There"* Ihe potential with stuff like CO-flemtx, allow- 
ing you 10 loop sections of CD tracks for megamixesi

TRUE COLOUR 







IF YOLf'VE EVER SEEN a really good 
digitised picture in ihc Amiga's 4.D96-colour 

HAM mode, ytwi may realise thai Amiga 
graphics can be si>mcthing prelly special. If 
you've ever paused a video lape on a player 
wiih ;i really good free/A^-frdmc, you may also 
realise thai KAM images are ju&l as good as 
your average TV picture. 

But if you had ever tried doing a version of 
ihc Yorkshire TV logo on your Amiga (that's 
the one with the golden amiw plungmg into a 
sea of liquid ^old). you might have realised 
thai HAM isn't really up to die job. 

The problem, essentially, is colours. Any 
computer has a limited number of preset 
colours and shades of ctilour built into it on the 
chips: il\ i:a!led a 'palcilc\ The Amiga has a 
palellc of 4,096 colours and you can, m theory, 
use every smglc one of ihem ai the &amc uroc 
in the clever graphics mode called HAM. 

To do anything Ihal needs lots of subtie 
shading, like that Yorkshire TV logo or a real- 
istic human li*cc. you needs lot*, of different 
hut very similar colour.. You can easily find 
out for yourself how many shades of any one 
ciriour the Amiga can do by looking at the 
palette in Deluxe Faint. 

Yho have Ihret sTidcrs 1o alter colours, with 
notches along lliem numbered <1 to 15. Sel 
Ihcm all to 0. and you have black. Set them all 
to K you have a very dark grey. Cany on sel- 
ting them alt up a notch and you'll go through 
lots of shades. c»I grey until eventually you 
reach 15. 15. 15 which is while. From all Os 
(black) to all 15s (while) is 16 shades of grey: 
and IhHl's just how many shades of any coliHir 
(he Amiga can do. Incidentally, because you 
have three different sliders for Red. Green and 
Blue, each of which has 16 notches. 16 limes 
16 times 16 gives you the Amiga's grand 
total of 4.096 colours. 

Now, if yuu wanL to do truly subtle shading, if 
you want to do genuinely photore^istic pic- 
tures of a human face, you'll need more than 
16 shades of each colour. U's generally 
accepted thai to do it properly, you'll need 256 
shades of any i»ne colour. Imagmc your 
Otluxe Paint paleiie again, but with 256 
iKXchci on each slider. In total, you'd have 
256 tuna 256 times 256 colours: dial's a total 
of 16. 777. 216 colours- Wowl 

This is what's known as "True Colour', 
Othx upon a time il was only available on 
eiitremely expensive <we"re talking hundreds 
of thousands of pounds) 'graphics worksla- 
tioas' like the Quanicl Paintbox system, u&ed 
by professionals in the TV studios to do things 
tike that Yorkshire TV logo. Bui now True 
Colour is available for the Amiga. 

It's still veiy eKpeasivc. mind. \\ involves 
owning a larger Amig«> a 1500, 2000 or 3000, 
because the extra colours come from plugging 
in what's known as a 'framebuffer' card: and 
these cards can cost £1,000 upwards. But it's 
gelling chc^^>c^ all the lime, and it aln:ady 
means piufcssional on a tight budget and keen 
unatcurs can affixd lo do what was once the 
preserve of wealthy TV companies- And it's 
soraediing any Amiga owner who is proud of 
hiK machine should bo aware of. 



The workings of it are essentially quite sim- 
ple. Any picture on your Amiga screen is. as 
you know, made up of lots of tiny does called 
pixels Icomputci jarg<m. incidentally, for 'p'^" 
ture elennent'), each one of which can be a 
different colour. The colour of each pixel is 
stored individually in the Amiga's memory: a 
whole picture is stored as a list of one pixel 
after another, starting a1 the lop left artd work- 
ing across the screen to the right then line by 
line down lo the bottom right 

The number of colours you are using on die 
screen dictates how much memory is used for 
each pixel. At its simplest if you're only u^ing 
two ctriours (say, blue and white) each pixel 
needs only a single '|>it' of memory: the smaJl- 
esi unit of ntemory there is. either a one or a 
zero. Blue could be one, while while is zero. 

If you're using four colours - red. green, blue 
and white - each pixel needs two bils of 
memory. Two bits gives four possible combi- 
nations: I J would be red. 1.0 would be green, 
0.1 would be blue and 0.0 would be white. 
And so it goes on: each time you add an extra 
bit of memory per pixel, you double (he num- 
ber of colours available. Three bits gives eight 
colours, four bits gives 16 colours and five bits 
gives the Amiga's normal maximum of 32 
colours. If you don'i mind, we'll skip how you 
manage to get 4,0% colours in HAM on the 
Amiga: it's basically a rather clever cheat, and 
doesn't follow the pattern at alt. 

Now, for True Colour you need 16,777.216 
colours. IF you work il oui with a calculator, 
doubling the numbers each time, you'll reach 
the conclusion thai you need 34 biLs of mem- 
ory to describe each pixel. And that's why 
True Colour is also known as 24-bit colour. 

A,s you can see. the theory is r^lly pretty 
Simple, flic only problem is that when you 
have 24 bils of memory to describe each pixel, 
a picture can be pretty enormous. If you've 
ever checked the comparative sizes of a four- 
colour picture file and a 32'Colour picture fdc. 
yiKi'll notice there's a big diffcrcrKe. Imagine 
how much larger a 24-bit picture file is: each 
cae can take up a whole floppy disk. 

You lend to need lots of hard disk spate 
and preferably an accelerator card too, and it's 
this as much as the cost of the True O^our 
hardware thai malres il expensive. But you can 
gel a pretty stunning Amiga set-up logctbcr for 
£4,000, which for professional TV and video 
pec^lc IS ^>solute peanuts. 

The only other thing Ihal you need, of coum, 
is software diat can actually worl^ in 
24-bit colour. Because it's very difficult to 
pami with millions of colours, the emphasis 
tends to be on 3D modelling (most of the 
recent programs available woifc in 24'bii) or 
on digitising or scanning in photogra^^c 
images with which to worlc. 

And that's probably "nuff said for now. 
We've been criticised for giving too much 
altcniion lo expensive 24-bit hardware and 
software in Armga Formm, but we think it's a 
very exciting area and «re will continue to 
keep an eye on it as it develops. Arid, hope- 
fully, gets cheaper? © 



Yes, you too 

In bwe ZT we looked at a clever ^d^ called HAW-E, wMch 
efteclivelv gives you ttw power of True Colour but it a frvction of 
the cost- It'll set you back about C300 and has the advantage Ihal 
you can use it with an A500- h comes complele with a basic paint 
program arid an extremely ftOOd image-procflSSing program 
called Image Professional. 

The way H works Is this. The kivenior of HAU-E used a r>eet 
piece of rAasonir>g, H a high resolution pliel has lour bits of 
colour - equal lo 16 colours or rvgislers' (3 i 7 v 2 v 2) - then • 
pair ot pixels wouM have eight b^s, which la 256 colours (Z k 2 k 
2t2«Zx2x2x2). HAU-E therefore uaea a h^^es dlspJey (640 x 
2M non-intertace) IhjI only uses pixeis In pairs lo give a lo-r«s 
screen with sn epparent 256 colours- 

The h«r<tware controls Itie display by e)(amlnlr>g the ftrst few 
pbmis of the image, over four lo eight scanllriee, H It flrxls the 
rtgtit comt>lnatk>n of colours at the top left comer ot the Image (a 
amall block called the magk coolila'). HAM-E Is triggered'. If the 
basic 6-tHt registers are used 'slraight\ images can have 256 
colours trom 16 million. This is register or reg mode^ It is also 
possible to use the information in Ihe magic cookie' to set up 
more registers ttiat allow an evterKled HAM mo<le, HAM-E. 

Normal HAM uses siji bits for each pixel. The Mrst two are for 
control, the other lour contain data that deflrws, either Ofw of the

graphics were something pretty special, but

can have lots of colours! 




Ifi cotourt in ih« pa^Tle v^^" have chosen, or the

pixel wilh ll» R. G, or B value changed, 
mode uBe» a similar liick but wtth eighl 
r each pixel and a 256 colour rather than 16 
regtsler. It la all & bH more complex than Ihls 
but In effect HAM-E mode gives a possi< 
262,144 colours on screen, and 256 paletle 
90 supposedly no fringing. In practice you 



atlll have to be a tad careful, which can somewhat 
Inhibit spontaneity, but overall, images do tend to 
look much better than with normal HAM - which is 
atmost True Colour, 

HAM-E Is getting encour^lng support from 
graphics software manufacturers, and now available 
for use with It are special HAM-E versions of paint 
and animallon programs: Speclracolor (reviewed 
this issue on Page 182} and 30 modelling program 
Csligari. Mote is lo follow: a HAM-E version of The 



Graphics Wottishop (as leaiured on one of this 
month's Coverdisks} is immlneni: It's selling in an 
American NTSC version but some bugs In Ihe 
European PAL system will deiay tt's reiease dale 
slightly over here. 

HAM-E comes in a basic version tor £293 and hi 
an advanced version with in-bullt anti-aliasing 
(which smoolhs off iagged edges In your pictures) 
for £399. M's made by Black Bell In Iha US and sold

Dfiiixe Pmtxi 111 is widely regaided as one of ihe 
ino^t accessible and effective ^bMmap' paint programs 
ever made for any computer. But in Amiga lemis. there 
was one thing it could have done thai if didn't: and 
that's use the 4.0%-colour HAM mode. 

Twt» very good HAM (Hold And Modify) paim 
programs have been around sinec the early day>< of

OigiPainl 3. The only trouble with this was that every- 
one uses DPainr for pamiing in anything up to 64 
colours TEntra Half Briie mode) but you'd have to use 
one of These two lor HAM: and they're both very dif- 
ftifeot from DP aim m use. 

1 ht anhMcr came only a couple of month.*, ago. when 
Oeiux^ Paint tV was launched with an exclusive 

review and Coveniisfc demo in Amiga Format 26. Nol 
only does the lalesi version use HAM. but it is also the 
only paint program that can also u.se the nomial paint 
modes from two to 64 colours. We believe that it has 
effectively stolen the standard Amiga paint package 
market in the UK completely: there is no reason for 
anyor>c \o ever buy anything el.se again. Wc do, how-

a sign ol thm. Having just a 'standard' program that 
everyone uses makes life easier for everybody, and wc 
expecl to sec this happening in almost every arca of 
Amiga software over the next year. 1992 will be 
remembered as the year that Amiga software sorted 
Itself out and ^ettled down, so that wc can stop wony- 
mg about which program to use and gel on wjth doing 
£onieihing creative. 

As a last note on the subject of graphics, il's worth 
mentioning thai both Photon Paint 2 and Di&Faint S 
can do a couple of liltfc things DFainr can't, so spc- 
ciahsi*! might Hnd them altraclivc still. 

OiKiPoint is from Newtek, who have much ntore on 
(heir minds nowadays wiih the famous Video Toaster, 
the complete graphics hardware and ^flwaiv solution, 
but they've turned their back on the UK iTiarket and arc 
noT plimnmg tn make a PAL (European TV standard) 
version *jf the Tuaster, Somewhat forgouen about. 
DijiiPaiiii will be sold as part of a package culled 
Medi;iStaEion with digitiser DigiView and presentation 
sequencer Elan Performer. 

Photon Faint 2 seems likely to fade into the back- 
ground Mimewhat. especially ^Jnce a new version was 
released earlier this year in the form of Spccrraiohr 
trtxn Oxxi-Aegis. which features brush animation in a 
Oflim- Pdint style but in basically still Phoum Faini 2.

Graphics has always been the strongest area for serious' software on 
the Amiga, dominated by certain stalwart, but aged, programs. But it 
was shaken up completely this year as a new generation took over... 



area which was still dominated by several Ibree-year< 
old programs, 3D is the most sophisticated and 
professional area of the Amiga's graphics, so the ttew 
urivals arc particularly important to the growth af 24- 
bit 'Trxie Colour' systems on the Amiga. 

Ray-tracing is ihe really fla.sh side of thingSi 
■Idiough It's characterised by shiny balls against a 
dcquerboard background ii is in fact a highly sophisit- 
cated technique that works out how light rays bounce 
off surfaces of different shapes and textures. Old stal- 
warts Si' ulpt- Animate and Turbo Silver were kicked 
into louch by new airivals imagine and Rvat 3D. A 
name to watch out for is 3D Professional, which disap- 
pointed this year, but a highly-improved second 
version Is due next year. 

The jiimpler 3D modelling programs, which don't 
use ray-tracine and so tend to give a nmrc aitifLcial 
'computer world" look, took off in a big way this ycar. 
Whcre before there was only Videoscape. a simple sys- 
tem often used for PD demos with a UHik of ^D Tilled 
polygon" games about il. Ihis year saw the arrival of 
Draw 4D and Catigari. The former is carefully tar- 
geted at use in illustration work, while Catiaari hus 
great strengths in its simplicity and is cxpeLied ici make 
quite an impact when the more straighlfor^^ord new 
version is released very soon. O

BEST BUYS 



WK'kK \ KRY AWARE thai Amifia Fommr h noi just an enier- 
uinnii-'rit, bui also i source of information. This is particularly 
tnie of buying advice. Software and hoidwarc are boih expensive, 
and you warn lo be sure ihal you spend your money wisely. 
Which is why we regularly cany buying guides, comparing 
evL-ryihing \hM's available in a pariicular field and picking oui 
ihc best in quality and value. 

The Amiga 'serious' software and hardware scene is so active 
thai Uie answer to the question "Which b the besi...?" is con- 
^anily changing. With new rc1ca.scs and improved updates 
appearing All Ihe rime, no sooner have we looked at, for instance. 
±\l the word processoni on (he morkci than a new one appears. If 
mi^hi be better ihan the best, or it might be worth avoiding. 

In our ihird issue of rhe year, number 2 L we compared ever^- 
smgle paint package Ihai there is for the Amiga, At the time it 
wo^ impONSible to pick an overall winner: Deluxe Faim lU was 
our favourite, as i( is for so many people - most Amiga games 
designers use it to produce the graphics - but because it didn't 
inc the 4.[W6-colour HAM mode, we saw SpcctracaloF as a 
dcfmiic second purehase. 

This year that all changed, with Deiuxe Paitu IV not only 
guning HAM bui also becoming the ftrsl major paint package Lo 
i^ffer the ordinary graphics modes up to M-coloui us welL There 
would almost be no poinl taking <\\ pages to cover paini/anima- 
tion programs nowadays; we could simply say "buy DPaitu IV\ 

The year we j§ 
you a choicer 

You know the feeling: you have a clear idea of what you want to do, but 

there's a bewildering choice of things to do it with. Which is best for you? 

Throughout the year, weVe been comparing all the choices and picking 

the best. Here, for the first time in one place, are our conclusions... 



picture wiih the TV pictured so we've token a look al 
a range of different genlock> in this issue (Page 2181. 
As for video software: well all you need is ^omtthing 
you can produce titles and graphics with, so we've 
always argued that you might as wdl use Dctaxe 
Fiiiiir rathor ihan a dedicated titling program. But v.c 
will be laking a look at a complete :tppro:tch to mak- 
ing your own videos in the ver> neat Juture. mcluding 
a detailed look at video wft^ure. 

Miuic is anolher area we haven'l covered in detaiL 

The muMc scene's been j bit dead for a while, but it's 
just kicked back into life again, someibing we've 
helped to do. Many of the Amiga fanj* who are mio 
music are using 'tracker' progrjuni. which is why we 
gave away the best of the kind, OtiaMED. on the 
Coverdi'^k of Issue 29 (copies arc still available from 
our Back issues department on Page 23S). As for the 
rest, well it^s an area about to be dommaicd by a cou- 
ple of programs. Watch out p(t^t-Scqiti'mer One 
increased mtisic coverage for moiu... 




\vl every area of ihe Amiga changes so vastly with new 
releases: ver> ijften ihcy just increase your range of choice. Since 
our d^gil^^LT^ round-up in Issue 22- for instance, a new high-qual- 
ir> digiliscr has appeared called Snapshot (lssue27). but there are 
already a couple of equally good ones around and the choice 
'^:^nains a personal one. 

Sound samplers arc a slightly different case: since our round- 
op m Issue 22 we've seen the arrival of a grcat revamped 
ftiEiy-lcvd contender in Tcchnosound Turbo Ussuc 26) as well as 
Mi excellent new piece of software in the form of Audiiion 4 
<Ksuc 2V>. But there's also a whole tot of new stuff on the way. 
iTKluding Microdeafs improved Stereo Master and AMAS 2. as 
•ell as PunDAAL's new one, a prnmiMng contender from 
An>crican hardware giants GVP and the latent version of the 
fjbulous AuJiciMn.'iier software. All cause lor a new santplcr 
comparison very soon. 

Even Ihc most recent of our comparisons are subject to 
dyngc^ There arc three new hard drives ready since our test com- 
panson in Issue 28. one of which is reviewed in this is^ue and 
iwoof lAhich will follow ne^t mtmth. Since laM issue's word-pro- 
;:cssors-wnh-gra|rfiics piece a nc^* verMon of PniWriie has 
j|)pcared. and is reviewed on Page IS9. 

So, x^hal with paint and animation programs, sound samplers. 
Winners, video digitizers, ihrce-dimenj,ional graphics; programs, 
hiid'disk driven lloppy-disk drives and word -processors- with - 
graphics: and all this accounted for over the course of the year, 
what else could there be for us to cover? Well, there's plenty. 

For starters, there's video. The key to using your Amiga for 
\iAeo is having a genlock fa device which mixes your computer 



W«*ve had a lot of requests for a go<Kl round-up of 
educational software, so there'll be a big one for the 
parents in Ihe March issue. Issue 32, We haveni 
properly covered business-like software ^databases, 
spreadsheets and accounts) in a while, so you can 
expeci some more of that shooly after. The DTP 
scent! is changing rapidly and when we have ihe latent 
versions of the Big Three [Pro/esxional Pa^e. 
Pa^cstreant and %a.xott Puhhshtri we'll go into the 
lopic again. We've also seen a sea of change in 'mul- 
timedia^ on the Amiga over Ihe last year, so there will 
be a special issue on that area and what it means to 
you commg up very soon. loo. 

Bui is there anything else? Arc you facing a tricky 
buymg decision at the moment, with no idea what you 
should go for? We'd very much like to know. If you 
have any suggestions for a round-up, a comparison or

THE BIG RACE 









Place your bets, the runners are under starter's orders and ready for the Christmas software 
handicap hurdle. It's the race to see which game will hit the top slot at closing time on 
December 24. Game publishers have chewed their fingernails up to their elbows, eager to 
know whether they've made the big time during the Chrimbo software silly season.

'91 "Jimmy WtiHv's Whftriwfnd Snoohvr.

as the rwiews say tlrey are. t think 
Snookor K one of the Inw g^mvs thai

it was so well put together ^'^ 




'92 -Birds Of Prey is looiting Impressive. Possibly Elite II - I think ifll bo 

of the s^me but technicalt)f excellent. And Snookfrr If. I've got som* nice things 

lined up for that^" 



Neil Young, PROBE 

'91 'ITS been a bH of tie-in 
year, and tfiafs atway* a 
bit crap. Lemmings was 
gcHKl, because It wjh fun 
to play. AiHi the 3D in 
Thunder hawk knncked 
everything for tljt." 

■92 'My tip Is something fantastic 
frofh Electronic Arts. I don't hAOW 
wf>at, but they always tlo ttie busi- 
ness. TfHise Bulilrog l>oys have been working on sonte stuff and Tm Hir* if U

Dean Lester, TEQUE

speed and violence of Spe«dball II was good and 
an improwenYenI an the first one^ Lemmings wias 
fun because you didn't have to hill anything." 

'92 ''We reckon we'll crach It with Skadowlands^ 
There will be a svrge of HPGs and iots of people 
nwho dismissed them will start getting into them. The Amiga wrill growf from 
this Christmas, with the memory eapaBSio«*s as standard. Tbe CD-RO(M drhres 
are not necessarily the aHavor. Budgets will take off - partly becaws* of tlie

TO GIVE YOU ALL THE VERY BEST ACTION 




WE'VE MOVED AIR LAND AND SEA 



And put them all together in one little box. 

Three of the fastest, most furious and perfectly 
deadly simulation titles in one pack (for only £34.99.) 

In F/A-18 Interceptor"^", you fly 7 combat 
missions in an F-16 or an F-18, the most advanced 
aircraft of our time. Dodge cruise missiles, rescue 
dov^ned colleagues, save the President, even fly under 
the Golden Gate Bridge - in fact everything you'd expect 
in the average day of a modern pilot. 

The Greatest Spectacle in Racing ® is translated 
into the Greatest Racing Simulation in Indianapolis 
500®: The Simulations^, Select one of three cars, 



or design your ov^n and race against 32 different 
rivals. Then replay your mistakes and triumphs from 6 
different angles, in case you had your eyes closed and 
missed them the first time. 

Finally, there's 688 Attack Sub"^. Experience the 
most dazzling 3D graphics and digitised imagery as 
you command the 688 or the Soviet Alfa. Plot your 
way through 1 different scenarios v/ith infinite play 
possibilities, beneath the hottest seas on the planet. 
Not to be attempted if you have a fear of enclosed 
spaces or the sight of torpedoes headed in your 
direction.

Epic by name, epic by nature. It took two years to 
make and has some propaganda to live up to. 



Space is big. real big. it's so iiard lo 
explain jusi how enormously iiugc ii 
rcaWy i^. Movies lite Star Wdr.t relied 
on Uiis essenlial 'bi^^ncss". using this vast 
sense of scale lo uehieve epic ovcnoiies. 
Strangely, ihou^h, torn puier- based space 
udvL-mun;s hjvf never quiTe trapLured this 
'awesomely large' leel. However, (Ocean's 
stunning new space sim, jpily titled f^pir. 
promises lo bring jusi suth sense of cinemaiie 
Kale lo ihe Amiga, 

The scenario follows a race of humanoid 
lypcs whose sun is aboui lo expltxle in a *iuper- 
nov^, NaluraMy. ihcy decide lo vacale [he area 
and SCI off in a huge, space-rcfugee caravan- 
As ii happ^-■n^ - like it always does - Ihis lakes 
ihe huniunoids direcily into ihe paih of a hos- 
lile warrior race who sec iheir evacuation as an 
invasion. Cue massive space b^iUles and laeii- 
cal planei raids, with you Hying shoigun. 

Lost in space 

Epic has iwo main ihreads: 3D toinbat runs 
and intermiiieni siory sequences. It plays like d 
smiulaiion and looks like an adventure. Before 
and after each baiile ihe siory of ihc (ieemg 
convoy is advanced wiih shots of ships 
liunhng through ^pace and bits of text that tell 
you what's going down. This explains where 
ttnd why you have lo fight next. And it's here 
the slick slideshow siLjps .md the aoiion should 
^ig its hooks in- 

The space baTik's rage in and around your 
moiher ships - ihese are basically your aircrafl 
carriers - and Hying around ihcm you begm to 
get a real sense of scale. These ships arc big. 
real big, and thanks lo clever collision coding 
you can gel n;al close. The siarfighter you fly 



Is a one-nian affair, but the boats vou have to 
protect antl destroy are enormous. .Added to 
this are swamis of smaller fighters, who fly 
intelligently in wmg formaiion. TTie intention 
is thai players feel themselves a small, bui 
vital, cog in a larger war machine. 

Tlie ground raids are where F.pif is most 
impressive. Hans of flight sims are used to see- 
ing their buildings from afar - small piles of 
pixels thousands oT leei below - but Epic's 
short-range weaponry' ^ dl force Hghtor crafi to 
go down amongst the smoke stacks and 
lovsers, h will be possible to fly un*iemcath 
archways or right up to siruciurcs anJ vehicles. 
What's more, v^hik everything at ground zero 
i<> perceivably huge, the frame rate remams 
nice and very fasi. 

Dream on? 

There is a school of thought thai ai^es Epic 
can never fullil this early promise, and thai the 
delays on the project prove ii is no more than a 
programmer's pipe dream. Doubters beware! 
The team behind ihe game, Digiial Image 
Design, have a hard-core pedigiee in Ihe 3D 
arena as the programmers of F-29 and 
Rohccop 3D. Some of the crew even worked 
on the original PC-io-Amiga conversions of 
Fiiktm! Epic works too: Uie various baiile 
arenas arc already coded and aU thai is needed 
now is for ihe game to be stiiched logeUier and 
shoe-homed on lo ihc disk. 

It threatens lo deliver a total package of 
3D simulation thrills and space fantasy. 
Imagine a world uhere F-lfts can hover, where 
tanks ore ihe size of siadiuim and space dog- 
fights are an everyday occurrence, that is the 
worid ai Epw and it's sei to blast off soon. O

Popuhm was a puzzle game, \sliere each

challenge. Pifptilous J is a game that poses a 
problem but expects no specific solution. The 
difference is subtle but vital. With the inclu-

Eventually. ii uas decided that ibe

humanoids from the organism, allowing ihc 
base ships to nuke the moihers into oblivion. 
or destroy enough of OncabkK's living tissue 
to make it shut dou n. 

As a last ditch atiempt to protect itself, 
ejch portion of Oncabkn; launches a twisted 
guardian to try and wipe out the Amnios ship*.

hard -fought skitTtiish. The graphics on the 
whole could really have been quite good, but 
sadly then; arc a couple of glaring j^liLchcs that 
just ooze la/incss. 

While going up and down in ihc lif^, 
there's no sign of movement (both background 
and foregnrund stay rooted ro the spot) until all 
of a sudden the floor appears. The same occurs 
while falling to your doom. Also, the scrolling 
while jumping is all too often disconcertingly 
haphazard. But the real problem is the game's 
pace - it's jusi all too slow. 

The whole business of rescuing girlfriends 
out of Ihe evil clutches of should be fraught 
with tension and excitement. But both (he 
comical animation of your hero and the hiss- 
whirr-clunk sound effects leave you worrying 
more about rustiiiji to an undignified halt, than 
of the glorioas liberation of your loved one. 

Really and truly, Und^r Pressure is a bit 
tedious, monotonous and just a little bit 
unconvincing. It i^ a game that can only come 
unreservedly recommended as an ideal Xmas 
gift for practical jokers.

As you play the campaign, your actions

The air-to-air views arc g^nid. but such is 
the nature of modem ait warfare ihai you don't

cnvironmcni that planes like the F16 or

would make lhi^g^ much easier.

tiring surface-io-air missiles ai youi and you 
just need to conceniraie on (he oihcr fighters 
as the range between you closes. Before each 
mission it's possible to specify wingmen. You 



can have up to ihree oihei planes (ihe same 
type as your&> who follow you mio combai. If 
you don't open fire, they will, and on Easy 
level your formahon will be firing ripples of 
AMRAAMS and Sidewinders in the enemy's 
direction. It's a bit disappointing if you don't 
gel a kill and they do. but at least you'Ll have 
survived and, as leader, you will get the credit 
for if in Ihe comprehensive debrief after* ards. 

You don't see these wingmen (which is a 
piiyj bul they're programmed to follow you 
wherever you go. So if you run for home 
they'll accompany you. 

Bombing m Ihe B 1 or B52 requires you lo 
line up so ihni you Fly over Ihe target ul the 
height required by your payload. Then you 
switch to ihe bomb-aiming sight and watch the 
larget drift through ihe cross-hajrs. It's tough 
but very satisfying when you gel it nghi. 

When attacking ai ground level <m the 
AlO. FI5E or B2 Sicalih bomber) you fire 
guided air-to- surface missiles such as the 
Paveway and Maverick, The target acquisition 
is similar to ihat of ihe fighters, bin it's only 
concerned with things on the ground. If you 
gel close enough with the AlO you can open 
up wiih its mi^iy 30mm Galling gun. This 
makes quite a mes^ if you aim ii right.

There is so much in Birds Of Prey llmt the 
flight-sim fan could disappear for weeks. The 




campaign scenario works well, the background 
detail is vciy strong and the vaneiy of planes 
is. of course impressive in the extreme. 

Graphics are strong, especially the planes 
themselves, and (he levels are set so that both 
beginners and bai^ened pilots can have fun. 

Letting it down is the frame rate. The 
graphics aren't smooth enough and there is an 
annoying jerkincss. It mighi be understand- 
able, bul it isn't forgivable. I'he lozenge

It's this factor which stops Birds Of Prty 
gelling a Formal Gold. In every other re^>cct il 
deserves one. Being able to fly 40 aircraft in a 
combai sim is no mean feat, and the war-game 
ploi is strong enough to carry ii off. But the

were knee-high to a hohbit ihcn this game 
may appeal lo you. If you're into swords 
and sorcery: Conan Ihe Schwaiycncgger and 
so on. you may aj> well skip the ncM paragraph. 
Shadow Sorcerer is set on the world of 
Krynn. home of the Dragonlunce \aga. TTie 
whole story is eoniained in an immense set of 
books, which was cleverly designed by TSR 
(owners of the Advanced Dungeons and 
Dragons game) to be the cornerstone of a mar- 
keting era. Put it another way - the 
background is TolkJenesijue with a few twisLs. 
The good guys in the game are the 
Companions, The game starts just after said 
crew have freed the slave population of a city 
called Pax Tharkas, and imprisoned the former 
master tticc (the Dr^conians). 

The situation isn't as rosie as it seems. 
The ex-slave refugees have nowhere to go and 
nothing lo eat. The Dracnmans are not going 
lo stay wallcd-up forever - they'll break out in 
a day or two, and they'll hunt you down. 

Vou've got to find food and shelter for the 
refugees and get them to a permanent sanctu- 
ary. Blocking your goal arc a varied 
ttSorimenT of monsters, several mountain 
ranges, and a democratically elected gnjup of 
refugee leaders who bicker all the time. 

Thoughtful mayhem 

Shadow Sorcerer is played on two different 
levels. The game sums on Ihe strategic map. 
It's composed of hexagons and only show^ the 
main mountain ranges. The objective is to get 
from the top end of the map to the southern 
part, where you understand a lost band of 
dwarves live, who mighi help you out with 
refugee resettlement . 

You don't have the mundane task of mov- 
ing the refugees ai\»und the map. Iru-iead, you 
control a small scouting party of up 10 four 
characters, drawn from Ihe larger group of 
Companions, You can also mix and match 
your small team. 

There's a wide range of talent in the 
group, from a dark horse maguj^ called Raistlin 




to a sweet old cleric named Elistan. Tlie usual 
ensemble of heroes, cut throats and woirior 
maidens fills the gap in the middle. 

The main body will follow your partyn 
gradually, As you move through Ihe Icrrainn 
detail gets filled in on the main map. The ter- 
rain varies from old roads to lakes (whicli are 
totally impassable). 

When you find something of interest - 
whether it's a -imall group of monsters or a 
whole undergTiHjnd labyrinth - the view 
changes 10 an i^ometnc close up of your group 
and any sunoundmg nasties.

action that you can command y^HH- troopi to follow: 




Hiere are magic items and weapons lo collect 
which can help later on. Gradually you pick up 
the plot threads. Without giving much away, 
the manual gives plenty of elues (assuming 
thai you read it). 

Hit and miss 

It may sound wondeilul, but I've got more 
reservaiions than a Iribe of Red Indians. It's 
iio[ so muth the way you play the game - the 
method of controlling your heroes is simple to 
learn, and the laetics are straightforward (r^n 
away unless you know you can win easily). 

No. it's the way Ihe game behaves. The 
larger cave networks are teeming with nion- 
sters. It makes sense 10 send in your fighters 
through the door fii^i. On the other side, your 
puny magic user/thief gets beaten to death, as 
ihf r]ghier% nngTute to the rear for no reason. 

When a character "dies' they mysicriously 
reappear ai the main body of refugees, ready to 
be healed and sent into ihe fray. How illogical. 

These are the lip of the iceberg. The game 
has no sense of humour at all, yet t carmot take 
it seriously. It looks great, plays all right, but 
keeps inpping you up with its bizarre logic. No 
long-ieim fun at all.

Just one question: why art the English 
such good losers? Ii's noi as though it's 
anything 10 be proud ol is it? Wc goi 
stuffed by Au-s1ia1ia and ocryonc^s walking 
around saymg: "Oh well, we put up a gcx»d 
fighr. What Tot! We bst and thui's all there is 
to il. Anyway, I'm noi a good loner and here's 
a game which gave me the chance ro ^tuff the 
Atiuies well and tmly. 

In true lers-cash-inHrm^d-popular'^pon- 
ing-dvcni style. Ru^ty The WorU Cup is a 
itprcscniaium of the clash of L6 nations m 
Rugby Union, To ihis cndn you can play eiLher 
a one-on-onc match, pining tmc country 
against another, or start j tximpk-it World Cup 
loumamoni uhich enables up to 1^ people to 
participacc. In effect whai Domari have 
attempted to do is create Kul Off for people 
who prefer iheir balls oval rjiher than round. 

From the main menu, single or louma- 
men I games can be chosen, and the match 
length can be set. Once teams have been 
decided a match proper can sion. TTk tcarru 
troop out on to the pitch, assxime thejr posi- 
Akis and the side that won the toss, kicks off. 

The up and blunder 

TTm: beauty of the bcsi \poning simulation* h 
their Mmpliciiy. KUi: Off ahcir's that game 
again), worked because of Ibe Mmpticity of the 
controls, [X>ntarJi have tried to bring this ID 
RWC. but there are many more permuiaiions a 
player can moke in the game of rugby. 

During ihe g^ne you control the nearest 
player lo the ball whoi* in an on-side position. 
Of course, the moment one of your chaps gets 
hold of the ball, he'll get jumped by about 
«ght very large men. so you're presented with 
a couple of choices. You can either kick the 
bail, pass it, or get tackled, m which case you 
either lose possession, or a scrum ensues. 

En rugby, as any British schoolboy will 
tell you. you can'l pass fopj^ard. so as the pack 




comes down on you. you can lob the hall down 
a line of players m the hope thai ooe of them 
can make ii to Ihe iry-lix*c. Thankfully, this 
clemeni of the game works brillianiJy. and it's 
very easy for you 10 get the ball quick!) out to 
> our faster pbycrs. 

If a scrum takes place then the idea is to 
push ihe cAhcT pack forward so that you gam 
pouc&uOQ of the ball- This i& done by 




It th« Jull »bould »o 
out of pUy «n th«

waggling the joystick as fast a.s possible in left 
and nghl directions. Win the M;Tum and your 
scrum-half can feed Ihe ball oui to your backs. 
Should the ball go out of bounds, a line-out 
lakes place, these are also' won by waggling 
the joystick. The thing is that linc-ouis anj 
scrums take place a lot. so by the end of a 
game of WCR your right arm will feel like it's 
played a real game of mgby. 

It is possible to create fast flowing rugby, 
though if you're coniroMmg an England side, 
you could be accused of not playing in keeping 
with the side's style. Each team has its own 
quirks and attributes, so white it might be 
entirely possible to completely decimate a 
team in scrums and line-ouLs, you might fmd 
out that they've got much faster backs than 
you and thus you end up losing. 

Step forward 
William Webb Ellis 

Graphically WCH works bnlliantly. At the risk 
of accusing Domark of plagtansm, it's all terri- 
bly reminiscent of Kick Off, and as any Amiga 
owner will tell you, that's no bad thing. The 
screen scrolls quickly and Hmooihly aroujid, 
Ihe players are just Ihe right size to be visible, 
bjt still controllable and the scanner option 
i;[3dNes you 10 run for the posts rather than 
the comer flag. 

Sound is bbnd, but then, few sports simfl 
Ruffcr because the sound is weedy. Gameplay 
is smotJih and. for the most part, extremely rig- 
orous. It's easy id imagine this being ihe kind 
of game which, if played agaioai a friend, 
would lead 10 a very different kind of scrum on 
the living-room floor, panicularly if you keep 
winning scmms and linc-oins.

SCREENPLAY 



Why docs anyone write horizon- 
[a]Ly-M:ri>|lin^ shftoi-^m-up^i these 
JavA? Thfv're all the same: 
they We ai\ goi a linle Jthip [hai goe& from Ehe 
lefl lo ihe rigtiL ^ide oTthe screen (without ever 
gecting ihere), ^hooiin^ at other linle ships that 
go from the righl side of the screen lo the left 
of ihc screen shimimg back- All the little Nhips 
ihm sh<HH back take Ihrt-e hiis to kill, but such 
Is the Auperiohiy of their ordnance that they 
only ever have to hit you onee. 

They all have an end-of-levcl guardian 
who never actually guards anything except the 
Stan of the next level, which is alwayj. like the 
last one. except the green things that you 
ucn'l meant to am mto arc no longer green. 
they're red. Hiis i^ not to say thai shoot -em- 
ups can't be any good, in fact they can even 
be great, but why would anyone b<>ihcr writing 
one that was destined, from it's inception, to 
be ubiuJutely crap. 

A good shoot-em-up.p. 

And Nanmom \^ crap, no two ways about it. 
and ihcrc is no excuse for « either It isn'! as if 
the projirammers have set uui in do something 
new and mnovaiive and faili-tl ihmuph no fault 
of their own. They have ^i out to imitate 
ftrsi-rale games like R-Type 2 and Z-Oui. and 
nuke a quick buck into Ihe bargain. The only 
way they will make that buLk i& if (here arc 
enough liwls out there ready lo be easily 
parted with ihcir money, 

kaUicr IhiiD look at what Netroiiom is, 
lei's coniiider what il is that makes a good 
shoot-cm-up good! Firstly, lastly and middlely 
it is gameplay- \b levels of parallax scrolling, 
intcraciive HAM haL-kgrniinds and a full stereo 
loundtrack may add a little to a game's per- 
ceived value, but (f the gameplay isn't there, 
then Ihe game's a lemon. If it's any good it 
khould Stan so easily that you think it's a bit of 
a dixidle really, and it Ihen turns nasty without 
you even noticing, A gcxnl sh*Hit-em-up makes 
you leel thai when you lost- a life you were 
just got the beitcT of, even though you played 
well, and next lime you know what to do, and 
how to beat the bit that just relieved you of 
your last life. 

A gooii ^hoot-em-up will leave you hang- 
ing on for the loading Acquence to tmish so 
you can get blasting again, it keeps you com- 
ing back! It i^ one of the most accessible forms 
of computer game known lo man. A good 
shoot-em-tjp can have you addicted for life 
before you ever finish your first game. After 
10 minutes with Necronom you probably 
won't ever wajit to play this game again, and 
after several determined hours, you'll probably 
want xa throw your Amiga in the bin and lake 
up train spotting. 

Strange icons 

This game has none of the elemcni-s thai con- 
stitute a good shooi-em-up, NONE! As with 
niAny of iu peers, the fint thing you do in 
Necronom is equip your vessel, and you then 
ilistribute a fmiie reserve of energy arinind the 
ship^s attributes by means of a coittrol panel 
with indecipherable icons. This only sets the 
relative strengths, so as you pick up ^global 
energy bonuses' throughout the game, your 
powers are upped in the ratios that were

To wony about the lack of finishing 
touches, tike the fact that the ship has little

Boxing. Ihe spori of kings, wtwre two 
men enter a nng in order lo bell seven 
hells out of each other has made I i tile 
real impact on Ihe computer -games ^ene. 
Which IS surprismg, considering the popuLaiiiy 
of heat-cm-ups- If you uy lo ihink of slugging 
tcsls then only Elite's Frank Bruno's Boxing. 
Supcnor's By Fair Mtans or Foul and Storm's 
conversion of Taiio's Final Blow spring to 
mind, and not all for good reasons. The prob- 
Itra is ihesc bouts are biased lowardit arcade 
action and against the rules of the ring. But 
enter Mindscapc. with 4D Sports Boxing, a 
vector-based bashing spectacular which puts 
the player in the fighter's gloves -liierally! 

Who is this Gym bloke?

and punching power), which determines what 
division of boning he'll be fighting in (from 
(he weak but nippy flyweights, all the way up 
lo the slow but deadly super-heavy weighis). 
To complete the picture, the colours of die 
boxer's jersey, imnks and even his face can be 
tweaked to suit your whim! Once Ihe bi>xer is 
Ulilt to a satisfiictory level, the new contender 
can Then either be put into a try-out fight to see 
if he fits the hill, or blast >ilraighl into a 
championship eliminator against another title- 
hungry tutpi-tuL 

The fighiscan be played rromelflwrofte 
fighters' lines-of-sighl, or from one of die 
stadium's various camera angles - there's 
even one which follows the fighters and 
always seeks Ihe best view of the action. Once 
you've set this up. along with the level of 
detail >ind the screen size, ihe bout begins. 

All the boxing moves you'd expect are 
tbere, straight punches, hooks, jabs and upper- 
cuts, and they all m^ike a resounding 'thud' 
when they lag the opponent's body. 'Hie other 
Tighter doesn't just hang about and let you 
pour on the punches, but he dodges, weaves, 
blocks, and tries to dish out as much damage 
as you. So leaping straight in and trying to 
club a fighter inio submission is not the most 
Mnaible strategy! 

Bar brawl 

Both boxers status screens contain four bars. 
the uppermost being an indication of ihe dis- 
tance between the two boxers, with one each 
for energy, siamina and power. These have to 
be watched clo>ely. because they arc your 
guide to how your fighter is actually faring. 

A little tactical chicanery is needed with 
some fighters - a case of wearing the opposi- 
tion down a bit at a time. However, unless you 
ke«p your wits about you and your guard up. 
your would-be champ will be the one decorat- 
ing the canva.v fiui if it looks like your boxer 
is just about to get smeared half-way across 
Ihe canvas, you can throw in the towel, but this 
wilt go against you on the boxer's records!

Depending upon who wins the bout, either 
your fighter (or your opponent) gets a nice 
littk earner, so the aim of the game is to keep 
going to the top. earning as much dough on the 
way as you possibly can. Once you're there. 
you've got to stay thereJ 

A hop, a skip, 
a rightto the jaw 

This fight game may not exactly be over-excit- 
ing to look at, but it plays well. The level of 
graphic detail ddenmne^ the speed of the 
game - on maximum detail ihmgs have a ien< 
dency to slow down a touch, whereas using the 




ban; bones (wUi nMtfchlfidi boxers) things fly 

along. Each boui is preceded by animations, 
which the eager can jump through, which look 
good and add that all-importam touch of real- 
ism. The staggering amount of views give you 
not only the option to look at the battle from 
your own eyes, hul from those of your oppo- 
ncnin and a wealth of camem angles (there's 
an especially nifty overhead view) which 
increases the TV feel expressed in the title. 
Add (o that some well'placed samples and 
an excellent thumping soundtrack, and Ihe 
package is complete. 

W Sports Boxing, with its excellent pre- 
sentation and adrenaline- pumping action is 
enough lo gel anybody from the weediest 
wimp lo the likes of Evander Holyfield him- 
self sparring away from the word go. li's still a 
bcat-cm-up. but one with style and dcpih - 
much like the sporl itself and a.s such, some 
folks will love, some will find h shallow and 
some will try to ban it. 4D Spans Boxing is the 
best implementation of the noble art so far 
and anyone who has ever wanted to be a con* 
tender, but doesn't like being beaten senseless, 
should give it a try.

their golfing world from polygons, just like 
their llighi and fight sims. This visual siep is

a litlle hole - but toial conirol of the club, 
stance and swing is really needed if you are lo 
be able lo play well. Simulated golf has to 
exhibit :i similar skill progression siructure, so 
experienced players perform far beiier. but 
also be easy enough to allow beginners to 
tee off painlessly. 

Control is the key to MicroPros^ Golfs 
success. The system ii uses is flexible enough 
to allow irick shols but demanding enough to 
(est an expert's accuracy, A single mouse click 
initiates the suing, and its height ts traced in a 
circular arc behind the player. Another click 
stops the upswing and sians the do^^n stroke, 
which traces a second arc as ihe club 
approaches the ball. It's at this poini that 
Microprose Go//" differs from ihc norm. 

The swing, stance, ctub choice and the lie 
of the ball all affect the liming for the vital 
third click which determines when the ball's 
actually 'hit'. This ideal moment is shown as a 
small highlighted area on the downstroke arc 
and the trickier the shoi, the smaller this 'win- 
dow of opponuniiy" becomes. Try lo hii the 
shot harder or further and Ihe window shrinks 



Bruce Forsythe does it, Tarby does it, even Nigel Mansell does it. 
Now MicroProse are trying their hand at golf, but are the techno- 
warheads going to score a birdy or a bogey... 



to a single pixel, play within the club's range 
and the window slays wide. 

The flexibility of this sirokc system is 
exquisite, giving players the ability lo punch 
out, slice nghl and hook left if you need a 
Sevy-esque l*eak to escape a bunker. You 
have total control of each shot because the 
exact parameters of a "perfect' stroke are dis- 
played and it's up to you to iwisi them to suit 
your own ends. 

Once you're face-to-face with the flag 
then another break with golfing tradition 
becomes obvious. Golf games have been noto- 
rious for featuring uncalibraied pulling power 
bars, so the skill lay in working out how the 
scale related to distance. GqI/ tells you the 
ideal amount of pouer to pui into every single 
putt, for a level green of medium pace.

Double bogey

common, here ihcy are brief by comparison. 

The weakest pail of the game is no doubt 
its sound- Golf Ibc spori is nol noied for lis 
dynamic noise, but only (be swmj: sounds 
good here. The ball dr^ippmg inio the hole is 
just a dull plop - still a wt^kome sound on a

u£z balls have become a problem. 
Springing from a sorcerer's magic bo^,

others up. If you complete (his penance ihen 
Uie wizard will (um you back into human 
fomi: fail and you're a fu^/hall for life. 

The lower provides one pan of Ihis tricky 
pn^blem, the fu^^biill^ themselves arc another. 

At times Fuzzball would start 
Mother Teresa cursing, but once 
she got a high score... 



The tower is a pla(fonTi piliGe. craimned with 
small ledges which provide an ideal hiding 
place for the escaped fluffier. The final (wisi \s 
(hai the fuzzballs have raided the wizard's 
treasure room and scattered his considerable 
horde of gems about the place. Every single 
la$l jewel has to be collected and every 
fuzzball exterminated if you arc to regain 
human shape. If you think this sounds easy! 
Tlicn (hink again*

The trouble vMih fuzzbalU is that they wont

red. At this poini they no longer wail to be 
shot, but just come hunting for your hide. 

The upside of this vicious lillie trail is that

Luckily 100.000 isn't thai high a total and 
forcing the fuzzies lo cough up the necessary 
exira points for a bonu» life has a peculiarly 
just ring to ii. 

The delicaie balance between player 
ptiinis and punishment is coniinLied through 
the game's time limit. If you f:ii] to clear the 
level within a set time - the time limit isn't 
displayedn but is generous - then a horde of 
bats escape and kill you. The firai time this 
happens it feels real vicious, not just unpleas-

ant. not just nasly. bui downright unfair But, 
when the screen clears however and you restart 
the level, it^s Iven cleared of all the luzzballs 
and fatal traps. This allows you lo romp home, 
get the goodies and gel out. 

The fmal part of the equation is the 
e:(pecied high level of 'stick skill. The maps 
are require pixel perfect jumps both to reach 
the safely of solid ground and to avoid the 
fiizzballs. Many plairorms can be jumped 
(hrough on the up too. so it*s vital that you 
watch the skies as well as the floor. If you hit a 
beasty on the hop then you die in most annoy- 
ing fashion. But. if you insist on doing silly 
things you deserve to suffer. A fuzzball 's life 
is a harsh bui fair one. 



Level headed 

Fuzzhali is not just a leap and shot number, 
each set of levels has a theme and their own 
particular hazards. The ice level for instance, 
tests control by adding a skidding momentum 
to each sioppmg move. It doesn't make life 
easier, but it sure makes life more interesting. 

Most levels also exhibit maze tendencies, 
uhcre the jewels have to be collected and the 
ftiz/batl-t killed in a set order. Leap for the big 
shiny poinis magnet at the beginning of the 
round and you can Tmd yourself safe but stuck. 
So each layout has lo be scanned for its route 
in advance, if you are to avoid the frustration 
of ending up stuffed and sat in a comer when 
the bats arrive on the scene.

Team Yankee is the definitive action simuiolj'on o/ modem tank warfare'. 

'Team Yankee.... the cnhcs' choice' 

Team Yankee is designed to test your leadership and tactical skills to the 

quick. 



AMIGA FORMAT 

Team Yankee presents a gome, 
in a Sims clothing, which when 
dealing with tanks has to be the 
perlect cgDproach!

The blend of thought and 
reflexes required to ploy Team 
Yankee is exactly right!

The use of tour screens in

This has to be a must for everyone!

Gollum Ncrojmed: "Baggins - we 
hales a forcvcfl". But he's in ihe 
mmoriiy because Tolkien's irilogy 
of Middle-Eanh life mum be one of the mosi 
well-reiid books m Engli'ih liieraiurc. E\en 
those \^ho"\c never read \\ kno« about vhe 
heroic qucs(^ of Frodo. Bilbo and Gandalf- w 
]['s quite u '^uipnsc thai no one'$ liuned il inio 
a game before now, 

Ailhough the prograninicr> have changed 
ihe encounters <.Iightl\, so thai Tolkien fans 
will siill find il J chjllengc. the plot is siill 
basically the same. Krodo has been given ihe 
One Ring by Bilbo v,ho has Ji^appeared, 
Gandalf. the Grey Wizard leams of the nng's 
power and. realising ihai the forces of the dark 
lord Sauron will s.xjn find it, he charges Frihio 
lo take the ring to the elves at Rivendell and 
then on to - well, read the book if you want lo 
find out. The mirt^ sequence - one of the besi 
this year - which iclls the Mor> of Bilbo's dis- 
appearance and the beginning of Fn^do's 
quCM, The atmosphcnc music which accompa- 
nies ihe iniro is second to none and reallv does 
a lot 10 set ihc scene. 

Flexible friend 

The game itself is insiamly accessible. As 
Frodo is sianding ouL^klf his hi>me with two of 
hU best hobbji friends, you can recruit iheni 
and wander off. It's besi to be war> of wading 
imo a situaiinn v^ithout thmking carefully 
about [he consequence?^. Until you get a few. 
more powerful friends, three, unarmed hobbits 
are not much of a match for anyone. 

The mam way the adventure has been 
made playable for Tolkien fans uho know the 
plot, js by addmg a number of .subplots, the 





successful completion of which gives you 
objccis. pcopk' nr information you need to 
complete the mam quest. A-'^ you wander 
through the centre of the lo^An, talking lo the 
(ocal hobbies, a number of sub-plots unfotd 
around you. Rescue ihe lost child and perhaps 
his father may be graceful - who knous you 
mighi even Imd s<imething thai would be of 
use lo you on your travels. If \ou stray too far 
from ibe beaten paih. the game gently prompts 
you witli suggestions, legend and rumour 

Unfortunaiefy. although it's a game thai 
you despcra[cly want to like, there's a loi 
about it [hat's frustrating and infuriaiing. In 
panicLilar. the jiame appears to be made for the 
.American market uhere ever)'one has a hard 
disk, becau:ie disk accessing is endless. Every 
time a new character appears, the disk 
accesses. I:\ery time j si>und effect is played, 
the disk accesses. E\ery time )ou attack some- 
thing, yes, you've guessed it: the disk 
accesses. The effect of this is to slovs (he game

down. But not as much as the terminally- 
insolved control svstem. 

The way you move Frodo and his party is 
by moving the cursor arroA towards the side of 
the screen you \^ant them to walk to and press- 
ing the left mouse button. This is fme when 
you want ihem tn v^alk in these directions, but 
if you want Ihcin lu weave through small gaps 
Of walk alt>ng diagonal paths - which is often 
necessary - the control ',ysiem is u puin in the 
bun. The icon control bar, brought up with the 
right mouse button is clearly laid out, but also 
suffers similar problems. 

Combatants 

The combat s>sicm is ama/mg. If you gel 
jumped b) a wolf (which happens quite a bit}, 
the wolf attacks. To counter aitack you have lo 
click on the aitack icon and the wolfs name, 
wail uniil the disk loads the appropriate sound 
and then it will icll you whether you've missed. 

Some early encounters can take over 10 
iinnutes oE bution clicking just to kill a single 
waif. Even more annoying is ihe fact it's very 
easy io uander into deadly situations while 
you're snjl weak. Spending two hours trekking 
around the \ov.i\ isn't too bad. but when you 
get killed withoui ^^ammg la horseman gallops 
down the path and slays your whole party) you 
have 10 do it all again; bit by bit ihc slowness 
of play begins to grate on your nenes. 

Tolkien fans will get a lot out of Lord of 
/he Rings, if the)' can bear the tedious combat 
and movement systems, and that a good pan of 
the game is spent moving acrosii the terrain 
between encounters. The less paiient. such as 
ihose used to Eyf of tht^ BehoUler anti similar 
systems, will get more e\ciiemem, adventure 
and VFM by buying Tolkien's original irilogs .

The graphics are the only cue a driver gels 
- ignoring the high- pitched engine whine - 
and if they fail, the game "self is doomed. Ft

As a true spons simulation, /-V is like Jim/riy

having the best line shown on the road and

[he mosi expensive aircraft in ihc world lo

Arts have released Strike FUei, which Titm 
surfaced on ihe C64 way back in \9%1. 

The idea behind die game wunds simple 
enough - you lake control of a lleei of naval 
vessels llhis is including dcck-bome beh- 
copicrs). and head into one of four differeni 
combat ihcaires - campaigns based around the 
reaMtfc Fulkbnds and Gulf conflicts, as well 
as Ihe now 'redundant, due to idea of an aitacL 
by Soviet forces from ihc North Sea, or the 
Nonh Atlantic, 

A life on the ocean wave 

Having selecied which campaign lo follow, the 
scene shifts lo that of an Allied naval base, 
from which the ptaycr can choose ships, 
names and weaponry for Ihc on-coming bat- 
tTcs. TliL'n It's simply a case of deciding where 
10 go iind sEcammg ai full '^pced lo face the

Eventually, wiih much steaming and lime 
acceleration, vessels appear and depending 
upon iheir allegiance, either &it theie or atiempl 
to blow you ou! of the wnter! 

The opposiiion has all manner of ships 
with which to shoot you away, but the real 
killers are hcUeoplci^. subs, and the dreaded 
txocet missile. Of course, you^re not com- 
pleiety helpless, with a variety of deck guns, 
depth charges, loqvdocs. umi-mi^isile missiles, 
and copters of your own, bui it's always a 
close run ihmg.

Radar can be used to seiek out ships ai a dis- 
tance, lo discover which vessel is which lan 
early warning of battle readiness), Willi ihe 
radar on maxunum long-range scan, enemy 
ships can be picked out and picked off. This is 
Ihc essential spirit of modem naval combat. 
none of this short-range cannon nonsense, now 
Ihc battle is won - if not foughi - beyond 
visual range. This makes radar a tool no cap- 
tain can afford to i^ore jf ihe> want to win. 

Once a specific aim is achieved <such as 
Ihe sinking of a particular vessel, or fleet), it's 
back lo base for repairs, refits, commendations 
and a wcH-eamed mug of cocoa. Failure will 
mean a switi and merciless denwtion. lo some-

Strike Fleet's mam jUt^lfuhji iics m the fact 
that the noveliy facior is '.nil relatively high - 
the onginal C64 version was good, but wasn't 
really atmospheric enough to keep would-be 
Reel Admirals stuck to their screens for long. 
With the .Amiga's more flexible capabilities. 
Strike Fleer i* siill a lough game to get into, 
but the rewards are far givaier Although mM 
graphically bnlltant. uh^i ^^ ihcrc peifomis the 
l&sk more thiin satisfactorily, but a Utile more 
m the was of sampled sounds would have 
improved maiters- 

One Lhmg's for sure - Strike Fleet is 
tough, damned tough. Novices lo this sort of 
sim will be lucky to survive five minuies in the 
water before having an Exocei fly down theif 
throats. Those who are a little more experi- 
enced in these maners will find this to be a 
solid, challenging game with endless possibili- 
iicv If simulations interest and experience you 
even only in the ^LighicM. ha\c a look at this 
one. txxause >ou'll soon be absoluiely hooked,

SCREENPLAY 



Fancy a beer? You can boi yourself a 
pint ihdi Hiigar Joea. The K-cr swig- 
ging ovtrwoighi drunkard is hack ami 
this lime he's in ihe form of u compuier game 
characrer. Those fumiLiur with Hagar will 
rcLOgnisc him from ihc farToon ihal appears in 
a daily rag. bui for the uni-nlighTcticd - you're 
obviously reading ihc qualiiy pre^s. 

Hagar is your typical lager kiut. He's 
always in the dog-house, but Tor now he has 
the opportunity lo change this depressing 
image lo thai of a person thai ts rehahle and 
can gel ihings done. Can he do it .' Can a Ictjp- 
aid change his spots? Tlul's up to you. 

Er indoors said 

Helga, his dearly beloved wife, has decided to 
(est Hagar in what iniiially mighi seem an easy 
enough task. As everything does when you are 



under the influence of alcohol (Not that we 
know - Edi and Rhe has challenged him lo 
bring back various items of value strewn 
around a world of eight diffefeni levels - 
islands in this case. 

Hclga is a mean and mighiy wom-m jiul 
unless she gets what she wants, it's chicken- 
feed and Ihe garbage for Hagar. Travelling 
through each of the islands mvolves tlagar

jumping around what is basically a platfonn- 
oncniated game, collecting various objects for 
different weapoas. energy or. unforgctiahly of 
course: beer! Along with these you musi also 
look out for the objects that Helga has 
requested (hat you bring back home. And this 
is the tricky biL 

The objects thai you need are pretty valu- 
able, and so are not easily obtainable. Like 
most platform games there is an clement of 
puzzling out required hefon- the objects are 
obiamable. This involves doing certain things 
in a certain order, or buymg the correct iiems 
that you will need fn*ni the shop. Shop? Yes 
there is a shop, where extra lives, energy and 
weapons can be bought, to supplcmeni ihe 
sword [hal t]agar has as standard to fend off 
any enemies, of which there are several - 
Hagar is not very popular in these paml 

As well as a shop, there is of course, a pub 
(or Tavcme as it is called in the game). 
Entering the pub allows you to spend the hard- 
earned money thai you got by healing up your 
foes, and Icis you buy yourself a beer. This 
isn't as foolish as it might sound, because beer 
is Hagar's main source of energy. Without it.

Alongside the cura weapon's such as knives,

trick up his sleeve: his super sword. Holdmg

swonl that extra bit of ihrust. 

Horribly decent 

There is not much that this game has over any 
other plat foim -style game. The graphics arc 
nice, and the sound effects arc decern, though 
not spectacular. In fact ^larT from Ihe famous' 
name licence, it's an ordinary run-of-the-mill 
game. It's an easy game to play, with a simple

G'nw« ar* afltn r«v4«A*^ Mfing thorlhAnd catch phratvs- Tbey'iv

plac#. M lay«r(4) Df backgroynd U diiplay«] twhind. A» 1h« foc«- 
grOHfid s<roHi (qv> tfi* background li Krolted in th« sam* 
direction but pFoporlionally tatter to ^nhanco th« illusion. 

2 Scroll - Thtft H Ihv way (tie foreground H physicaMy movod ill 
rvtpOfts* to your directionaJ comnv^ndi. The scrolling ^s USM* 
ally Initiated by tbe muvefnvnl o( your sprite (qv), whkh vtayl 
ilAttOfiary at the vcreen move*. The *ff>o«lh*r Uie KioM tlie Iwttar 
Iho iiliHlon of mdvamant. 

3playcF Interface - Hovv you tell the game exactly wbat yon 
want it to do- The player Interfaces with the 0afr»e via a Joy- 
sticky iwHHi«e or keyboards A good Interface - regardless of the 
control system - aJlows fnt. accurate control Mtd perftiits player* 
to Access all the garner functions with the minimum h*ssle^ 

4 Sprite - Most movTns o1iK<t*''>^r»<ters Ia computer game« 
are sprites. These are a separate series of animation frame* 
that an >asted' on top of the foreground. EHtier the player* 
actions or the game's program dictate which of the sprite's 
frames of animation need to be shount Aext* 

SCollisJort detection - Tlie sprttes you control are all sur- 
rounded by an invisible bojc- If a bui let/ weapon/background 
passes Into this boK a 'collEslon^ is delected and the relevant an|^ 
mallon lor a hK K displayed. If the collision detection Is bad you 
may be killed unfairly, by bullets thai dearly missed etc. 

6 Frame rate * The number of timet per second the screen dis- 
play is actually changed. The human eye Is deceived by rate« 
In excess of M frames per second, so gan>es that OKteed this 
appear to flow smoothly. The compleM maths Invohrod In ID fli4|lirt 
simulations means that they can fall ktetftw this artd took iorky^ 

7 Vector graphics - To accurately model a three dLmensfonal 
space on a computer Is to use onty geometric sfiapes. Any 
Object can be described by its coordinates within thfs space. The 
coordinates are stored as vectors, and the mutti^sAded shapes they 
describe m^^ three dimensional polygons- The objects In theeo 
games are not sprites and look as if they are made of flat panels. 

8nPC - Role^playing games originated with DHMflMRB BBd 
Dragons In the late n>s. The character description offers spe- 
cial abilities and limHatlons whkh must be observed during ptay. 
Tbe more accurately a character description Is adhered to by the 
player the better- RPC also stands for Rocket Propelled Crenaile 
which no^ofie wrftos games about. 

9em-up - A svfflK that describes games wfth one primary 
motive. Shoo1-em-ups mt^ scrolling games where everything 
m^sl be killed^ fighting games become beat-em-ups. platfons 
patnes leap-em-upsn sports games score-em-ups and football man- 
agement simulations oh -god -these^are^so- boring -em-ups- Theso 
are prone to abuse for the sake of a cheap pvn(em-upl). 

^^^ Port - Due ta the prohibitive cost of game developinent^ 

1^^ core parts of games progrants are often 'ported' from one 
format to another^ eg ST-to-Amiga, PC-to-Amiga. Spectntm-to 
Amiga {F^ Those 'multi-formar programs cannot utilise machine^ 
specific hardware unless they are heavily reurorked, and so often 
fail to get the best from the Amiga- Port is also a fortified wine 
consumed after dinner parties^

THE RUNNING MAN 

Remember Arnie'^ ihn:at in this tilm? Well sou shuuld Jo. u's the 
same as in all ihe other Tilms! He turns to the camera and sa>s '111 be 
back". Well threatening! U doesn't carry much w'eighl in this conver- 
sion though, since he stands a goo.T chance of being duffed up by the 
firsi opponent he meets. Not the way for a heroic film character to 
end up, is it'.' Never niindH this might help. 

Play ihe game urinl you reach the high-score i.tblo. .md onier 
your name us DdliSsKk (chat's 'disk' in uppei anJ louei c.ise 
nierged together). Make sure you enter the upper and lower case let- 
ters in the ^aine foTinat otherwise it won't work. When you lu-vi play 
the game you shoLild be .ibic lu ,lcI more like Anne and dull up ihe 
opj-K^nents using your inl'inite encrgy.

General strategy tips 

S^udy Uif mjps lo find the ^oiior «uh the besi 
L'li'mcnis for the inveniioiK jnti wish lo make 
this lime, then make it your sinning secior. 

If you Jnveni someihing and the designer 
soys* "Ergonomicfllly Tcnifn:". it means thai 
rhi^ i^ Lhe perfeei uay [o desrgn it and reduee^ 
the ficsjgn time by half. Nuie down the sector 
thai i\ \vas m and iodk under Blueprints far the 
design, where you will see a hand shaping an 
OK symbol- You should note down iu compO' 
riiiLis. If youi^eea sector Imcr in the game with 
[he same elements, you will know thai diis 
item Ofln he churned out m next to no time. 

Sectors wiih a lot of gatherable elemefils 
■Uow you lo quickly produce weapons im a 
fast surprise attack. However, sectors with 
mostly gaiherabTe elements are not as desir- 
able if the game has gone on to the later 
stages, in which case you 'ihould try to find a 
sector with more sophisticated elements. 

Whenever you mine a new seam its best 
to check the Design menu first in case a new 
design has become axailable. Lf a seam has 
been totally used up. makmg a design impo»ii- 
ble to priHluce. bin the design on the 
Bluepnnis menu. You may siiM be able to pro- 
duce it with the demems you ha^e left. 

Don't be loo disheartened if designs aren*T 
availoble to you stnii?h!:iway, If you want, for 
enample, an anny weapun. but you only have 
shields and building weapons, these may shift 
you up a tech'ievel, which a ill make another 
element available lo you. Thi:* ntay lead to the 
design you require. 

To produce designs that are either quick to 
make immediuiely or can he manufactured 
speedily, try making as much as possible 
before you start mining, since inventions made 
from gaiherables save iimc and man-power. 

Always wail until clocks have fully licked

resolution at the tip of a stylus. 

• Complete 9" x 6" digitizing area plus 

super accurate stylus combine to enable 
fast, accurate and easy control. 

• Works by "mouse emulation" so the

CD-ROM DEVELOPMENT 

PSYGNOSIS Is now established as a leader in CD-ROM technology. We are actively 
involved in a number of key projects and the expansion of this facility is now underway. 
We require the following staff: 

SENIOR PROGRAMMERS 

We are looking for classically trained graduate programmers who can write In 
both assembler and higher level languages such as C, C+ + and Pascal. 
Ideally you will have experience of working as a leader or member of a larger 
development team. 

PROGRAMMERS 

In the position of programmer we are looking for experienced programmers 
with more than one language including assembler Alternatively we are looking 
for enthusiastic graduates. In both instances the necessary training will 
be given. 

PRODUCERS 

Applicants must have experience of producing high quality entertainment 
product. A degree of liaison with intellectual property licensors and the ability 
to communicate ideas within a development team are essential. 
Responsibilities will include everything from story-board through to 
implementation on several formats. 

ARTISTS 

We require computer graphic artists preferably with experience of 3-D 
modelling and computer generated graphics techniques. Any experience of 
post production video would also be an advantage. People who have worked 
with high-end Amiga applications will also be considered. 

Applications should initially be addressed to Ms. Jane Donald at the address below. 
They will be treated in the strictest confidence.

24-BIT COLOUR 




At last a paint package has arrived 

that will allow you to use HAM-E in a 

paint program. What will this mean? HAM x 64 

lets you have 262, 1 44 colours at your disposal 

on screen. Brian Larltman picks up a full 

colour Animbrush and gets all arty with.,.

HRRi^ WE HAVE a muliiiudc of fir^ls. and 
(hey are all \cr\ cxciiing ones too. Thh \s wn 
only ihe first 'mumMrcam' Amiga paini pro- 
gram ihal will \uppon HAM-E (Hold And 
Modify - EMenUod) but also ihc llfst lo iim- 
male in True'Colour (ihai means 24-biis per 
pi?ie[) and in rcut rime. In other word'' n ^how. 
yoQ just whai HAM-E can reull) do, though 
even ihiy is only jum Ihe beginning, 

SuiphsmgK, though, ihc HAM-E vcrsi<m 
of SpearaCiilor \s virtually the same jv the 
Amiga original. 64 colours instead of the prc- 
vimis 16 are now the Base ColoiiTS, so the 
paktie. as well as the three Spet'iniin Bows 
and thi- Btcnd S^.[ iL-quc^ier are adapted to 
rotleci this. EvcryihiiK' ^ive though, is idcnii- 
cal in fonn jnd function. 

Using the huge increaw in colours docvn'i 
seem to have slowed operations ilown ai all: if 
.inMhing, SpfciniCoinr seem'* -a little faster in 
effect, ihc HAM-E version is just an adapted 
vcn^ion o[ ihe '■undtird Spfi rraCohr {v^h\\:h is 
in itself jusi jn ,Ldjpti.'d \ersion of Fhottin 
Poinn. It probably loot considerable re-codmg 
lo achieve this result but it looks and feels ihc 
same. After all ih^i HTjck Bell have been say^ 
mg abouT ihe transpiireni ^^ay their HAMI- 
works we lihouldn'l be surprised. 

[n a Wiiy this is a bit of a Jisappoininicni 
Why? Well because all those CMra colours jusi 
awaken a deep desire for more feature* - more 
ways for you to use colour HAM-E gives you 
far smoother gradients and much mine subtle 
blends of transparency bui after all, 
SpectraCohr is snll the s;imL' old Phtthm 
Pamt but wiih animation bolted on. (A fine 
program in ilfi time but a bit clunky these days, 
especially with ihe new Deixtxe Pui'it tV 
BTOund). By supixminp HAM-E. thnuiih. 
SjffcrmOtlor could have jumped mio quire a 
differeni league aliogeihcr so we might indeed 
expeci a few new reaium. 

All the same, ii is a very familiar envimn- 
mcnt to lA'ork in,: Photon Paint with giKx! 
animjiiion and IM-bit colour can't be all that 
bad so let's just see what it can do! 

The painting luoh of this program have

COLOURISINO Ed9# 'Ramping' can be n bTt of a prob- 
lem when Colour 
Mede tooU oro 
used to process the 
imoge. In IhU cato, 
some of ttie colours 
that are used to 
produce the pig 
spectrum created 
ramping and other 
edge ortifocfa 
(especially yellow, 
green and cyan). 

Anti-aliasing might have Improved these probloms. 

PAINTING WITH 
BLENDS The ability 
of Blends to slmu- 
lote wcrtorcolour 
painting is greatly 
enhanced with the 
smoother gradients 
of HAM-E. HAM 
'ramping' (fring* 
IngI can still be a 
problem If the main 
colours used in the 
drawing ore not placed into the Base Colours boxes at 
the start of pointing, Thlnlting ahead like lbl« t* not 
always possible and In any cose means that artists ore 
more limited in their 'sporttaneous' use of the pro- 
grom as o replacement for traditional painting 
methods. This is a limitation of all Amigo HAM sys- 
tems rather than of this program however. 



COMPOSITING As It 
allows 24-bit files 
to be loaded, 
SpecfraCofor HAM-f 
con produce very 
convincing photo- 
montage images. 
Here background, 
foreground and 
grass were mixed 
together quite 
oHoctivoly (the pig 
was colourlsed separately to avoid fringing prob- 
lems). Nevertheless, the lock of fine editing and 
anti-aliasing tools meant that a lot of time had to be 
spent cleaning up edges. 

ANIMATION Until 
Amiga HyperFormat 
is sold on book- 
stands, magaiinot 
ore not the best 
place to display 
animations. 
Nevertheless, this 
image attempts to 
give a flavour of 
SpecfraCofor's ani- 
mation style. The 
elephant Is an animbrush produced by RGB lor its 
forthcoming 9t^ml Thtn^S'Safarl ktf, converted (labori- 
ously) to HAM-E. Using o path it was sent from right 
to left , over the background. The whole animation 
was then picked up again as on animbrush, and 
Wrapped onto a ball, varying the siie, first to lost- 
Tho animotod effect li of an elephant moving behind 
a looming lens. 





and load these as indi^iduid pJLnures. a real 
FL'N job! As we mcniioned m the original 
review... "ii wsiuld he met if a series of 
consecutively numbered individual TFF 
pictures could be loaded in one go." Some 
thjngs never change. 

While >n? art on Ihe *Hubjeei of fde in/output, 
it muM he said ihai this is the first major 
Amiga pami program since the early days, not 
able to save an IFF picture fde. OK, ii's true 
th^ii HAM-E formal pictures can be loaded 
into I'nti^if Fniffssiiiiuil and saved in either 
18- or 24.bit IFF. but SpearaCtttor should 
offer 24-bit save ilscif. 

In foci ii vkould be nice if all internal oper- 
ations vi-ere earned out in J-l-biL bui displayed 
as HAM-E so thai Full 24-bii editing could 
rake place. This would be very slou but surely 
noi impossible, and certamly very Useful now 
that ^o many ;4'bii and is-bn display systems 
are arriving on Ihe scene. 

Thi^ most i>h\rous and n^ally the only compe- 
iihon to the standard HAM ver'iion of 
SpeciriiCf'l"r is Oettue fi'i"! /V and overall 
it's probably SfH-t-rriiOilfir [lui k^^e^ ou\. D 
Fttmt IV has a bit more of a polished feel to il, 
the animatitm system is much better inTegniied 
into the program and easier to use, Ihe derailed 
editing tools and anti-aliasing are far superior, 
and even ihe gradient fill is now 3lmo\t as 
good. Adding HAMU support reiiresses ihe 
balance diou^h, for SpccrniCfhr can load and

tions and twists, plus variable leveK of

fied during animation to produce stunning

It seenLs remarL:il>k that two paint programs 
with such a huge and seemmgly compleie 
range of features in coinnion should siill come 
up with so many unique tricks so as to make it 
ttonhv<.hile to own the pair. The adduinn of

Once you have

you nood to olthor

to render one. 
This quickly 
becomes apparent

Seed for Rutol HwbtK 

CUclt on OLD to U5« th« previous seed, 

click on TDO for 3, rmdon new seed, 

or enter i specific ne* seed* 

TDO 




The first thing the 
program reqvotti 
is a seed for the 
fractal algorythmt 
to use to create 
the random nuin* 
bers which will 
shape your land- 
scope, defining the height of mountains, meandering 
of rivers, frequency of lakes etc. 

Next you enter a 
number which will 
determine how 
likely any given 
point on the land- 
scape will be to be 
the source of a 
river. Each time 
you Increase the 
recursion level 

(the level of detoil In your picture) you will be asked 

to refine this setting 

Genesis now cre< 
ates a wireframe 
of recursion level 
one. At this point 
you can edit the 
landscape by click- 
dragging the 
points on the 
wireframe into a 
position that Is 
Moro acceptable to you and fay placing new springs on 
the wireframe. It*s quite difficult at this level to see 
what the final picture will bo like but when you are 
happy, click on OK. 



Now you should 
set your position, 
elevation and 
direction of view, 
the angle of vision 
is set by changing 
the focal length of 
your imaginary 
camera. 
When you have 
done this you can 
keep increasing 
the level of incur- 
sion until you ore 
ready to render 
your image. But If 
you go all the way 
to level 5 be pro- 
pared for a wait. 





(whidi hive to be added to grounJ >cenes in 
Pht'ti'ii Piiitui and the planets are scenes

24-hii ones in Marginally more. 

So what are (he virtues [ mentioned at the 
opening of thi^v piece? Well a lot more of the 
parameiers vshich defme the final landscape

A WORD PLBLISHKR is ^n ^ds^iccd word 
processor which has the abilLly to control Ihe 
layout and final appearance of youT d(>cumcnr. 
Although ihcy ;ire noL quite a» powerful as 
a dt'dkaicd desktop publi^mg program. 
for example Frofagc oT Pn^eSiri'tim. ihcir 
ouipui. e^>cciall> sonKlhin^z like Pri}Write- 
can be quite superb. New Hon£on& have 
managed to lake tnto account all the moaiu. 
groans and gnpes that users had with vcfMon 
3.1 to release (his new shckcr and fur more 
friendlier program. 

This version sees an jmpfovemcni m the 
graphics handling. The on-screen rcpn^scnia- 
tion of grai^cs is much hcttcr, wiih images 
now stored with all their information inienially 
despite only seeing a version of the image dis- 
played in the number of colours of the h:urTcni 
screen mixlc. 

This means Ihot although the screen may 
look awful, depending on your palctie, the 
final printed result will he in ^'vcellent 4,096 
colour quaUiy, As u mcihotl of conserving 
memory Lhough. si; roe n graphics arc not 
cached (stored in RAM) any more, so this 
means that screeti refreshes can be tediously 
slow when moving around, especially in hi-rcs 
modes with interlace. 

As weSi as improving the graphic printing, 
lejti printing has alsii heen n-vanipcd lo pro- 
vide smoother, 'jaggic-frec' outpui. This is 
done by actually using a font twite the size of 
that used in the document, and scaling this 
down for printmg, io give a bctlcr resolution. 
You then gel a far better, and sharper, printout 
than before. 

For those of you who are using Workbendl 
2-0, there is no pr(ri>lem wiih Ihis syslem. 
beeause fonts can be created 'on-thc-fty" lo 
produce double-si^c fonts, but those who are 
using Workbench 1-2 or Workbench 1.3, will 
have to make suie thai the extra loniTt required 
are in the appropriate font directory. 

Tbis lime New Horirnns have decided to add 
ihe PostScript output laciiity lo FtoWrifc 
within the program, means an external im>dule 
isn'i now rcquia'd. The system it use^ is simi- 
lar to PioPa^f's. which uses font metric llles 
to allow the use of the PostScript primer's 
internal fonLs, This means that ProWrite can 
actually load FroPa^c's font and metric files, 
and even go as fur as loading its texi files as 
well- keeping all the style codes ?^uch as bold 
and italic intact. 

In general, the program has been rewrilten 
to take advantage of the extra facilities that 
Workbench 2 offers, with a new kwk 3D-slyle 
interface giving a Worthench 2 loi>k und feel

new facilities include speech: yes il can now

rather invaluable for the paitially-sighted 
Amiga owners^ ^though it cwi often be a little 
difficuh to comprehend what the Amiga i^

HARD DRIVE 



Hard drives are pretty expensive. If you want 

an all singing and dancing unit you have to 

pay the earth, so Pat McDonald examines 

the nearest thing to a DIY hard drive kit. 



THE FIRST THING ihai 'ilnfces you a\>oW 
the DutufluT harJ drivf is i[s size, ll's huge! 
Mori? ihan twice as big as ihe A.'iW! The odd 
ihing is ihai ii^ also vi-t> lighi. Your left 
ihiiikmg thai pertiap\ ii imi( eomplctc. 

In i Kcnse that's right. As bought ihc 
Dataflycr is just a hard tlrive. Il draws all its 
power Imm the A500, and dwsn'l have any 
sockets to pui RAM ihips uiiio it. The giM*d 
news is ihut the r. .i^nui there's so much i-mpty 
space inside is that you can bus opiionjl extras 
and beef it up a bii, h v.\l\ lake a DalaRAM 
expiinsion eanl. which will tiikc ihe nitfinory of 
your cmnputer up by 2'HMK You ^an also tit 
the drive wiih its own power supply, either 
inside the box or out. 

No otiier hard drivL' that I know of has an 
internal power ^upply. and I can'i understand 
why - it's so convenient to just have a lead 
with a plug. Possibly because the magnetic 
field of a PSU can damage hard drives - but 
the metal cases slumUl l liminalc this problem. 

Finally^ IW [hose who need a loi of storage 
Kpoce, you can Rl a SCSI connector on to the 
back, to plug-in extra hard drives too. All of 
these options add to the priLe, Hut not every- 
body has £5(Kl to splash at one go on a CWP. 

Afl sel'Up at ilie ki^tory. Ihe Daiallyer can lo- 
used straighl oui ol the ho\, As all hard drive 
tttiers will know, it's necessary Lo rclormai a 
hard drive from lime to time- bceuuse eerlaln 
software land viruses) can tause a hard drive 
to faif All hiird drives come with a separate 
floppy disk which contains the utilities needed. 
and this one is no exception, Kefonnatting tliis 
hard drive is uniquen totally unlike any other 
I've seen, Ralher than using a specialist pro- 
gram with a prciiy graphical front end. the 
Dauflyer's sel-up priKvdtire Is contained in 
a Shell script. Gickmg on ihe Homiai-HD 
icon starts off a Shell window, and the com- 
puter asks you questions aboui how you want 
llie drive sei-up. 

All well and good, hut there are a couple of 
flUgs with this approach. The first is that, if 
you enier a strange value, the script doesn't 
«TOf check and just comes up wiih an error 
code. The second problem is that people (in 
getwrah really don'i like typing - a point and 
elide system is more approachable. 

There's oik' more thing 1 don't like, and 
that's the time M lakes for the hard drive to 
wort out It needs fonoatiing. and boot Ihe 
floppy instead, Vou'rc left wailing for over a 
minute while it mulls over whether to boot the 
floppy oi noi - no other hard dnve is tedious. 
On the other hand, you don't have lo a'fonnai 
iL orten. so it's a small glitch. 

In iwrmaJ use the Dalaflyer is really quHe 
pleaMni. It takes ten -iccondN or so to boot 
from the hard drive, which compares

However, when a virus vihkcs or you acci-

native language, let alone a foreign one. 

You gradually get lo leam ihe ms and outs

Tor the buffs out there, thai llgure was aitaincd

that y<iu don'i gel a Joystick loo. Because 
every Amiga owner has a mou'ie, that's (he 
method for using most serious and some 
games software. 

^^'hich i*i where ihi^ produci comes in. It 
seems Thai you don't gei a lot wiih it - a \\*\\ 
lighi pen wi[h a lead and two huiions, a thin 
manualn and a disk. £50 doesn't gel you much 
these days. At Least the boK is fairly sturdy. 

ti (s pretty easy to gel the device working. 
.All >ou have to do is plug ii into the Joystick 
port, and run the enclosed disk. The disk is a 
cops ol Workbench U. and il automatically 
runs the driver program, Tlie driver patches 
the way that the Amiga works, so you can use 
[he lighi pen instead of the mouAt, The ''irangc 
thing IS. you can use the mouse too! 

This approach means rhui ihe Light pen can 
be used u'iih all softw^e thai uses Ihe standard 
mouse procedures that are bud I in to the 
Amiga. If the program h;is ii\ own mouse 
reading routine, then it will not uork wlih ihe 
Trojan Light Pen,

your AmigLi >cnouHly. you uill nct^d lo kno^^ 
ho\^ (o copy ihc driver program onio different 
di^ks - and for iLui you will have lo use the 
Shell or CLl. 

There is one group of people who will run be 
impressed wirh the way that the Troj;i[i works: 
people who have jusi boucht an A50(» Plus or 
Diher Workbench 2 Amiga. It just didn^t woric 
- Ihe disk booicd, the program signed on. bui 
the moupie pomier would not Respond to ihc

This isn'l gotxl, hui the reason is that iho 
review version I had was sent lo us before ^hc 
Plu^ v,'A^ relea-sed. A new version »s now 
available which does work on ihc Plui. There 
will be some old slock in drculaiion, so do 
check 10 make sua- you gci the new version if 
you have an A 5( KIP, 

There are a eouple of faults, ihough. ocea- 
sionally the pojnier gets ^luck in an area and 



"ont respond for a couple of seconds. This 
isn't helped by a diny screen, but even hap- 
pens on a pristine system sometimes (usually 
on dark areas of the screen). Normal control is 
regained in a couple of seconds though. 

The worst fault of the Trojan light pen is 
the shape. It has no contour 3I all to fn in the 
human hand, and ihe buiions are too cLose to 
the end for my Liking. Li just makes ii harder to 
control M fiTst, in a similar fa^^hion to an awk- 
war^lly shaped mouse, 

Por use in paint programs, the pen isn't 
bnlliiini. You haven't got the ultra fine comrol 
o\ a mouse, which nukes detailed ^^ori incky 
unk'ss >ou're ioomcd into a picture. The other 
problem is found on all light pens - the screen 
is paniaLly obscured by your hand. After 
you're used lo these foibles, it's great. ^

FONT CREATOR

Getting snazzy new fonts to show off how 
flash your Amiga really is can be a difficult 
task to perform. Asam Ahmad tests out 
his very own ABC with a new utility which 
will make creating your own fonts far easier.

thai a program tike thhiM- Puinr has and arc 
severely locking m the manipulative ubiliiy

It is far. far easier to create a font in a paint 
program than il t» m 3 font edfioi, but ihc 
problem is ihai you cannot unc the ucw fonts 
that you have created in ans other application 
unless it accepts IFF pictures. You nct-d to be 
able 10 cut characters from your font screen 
and paste them down on lo your work ^iCTeen. 
And this is whetc tho first pan of the program

The rtal beaulx uf Ftrntjiruhbtr is thai you 
can load up most IFF screens, except HAM 
and Extra- Hal fBriie niodes. The screens an: 
translated into a ^linglc hit-plane Mack-and- 
white modL-s meaning that you cannot grab 
colour fonts for example, but apan from ihai. 
the fonts can be as big or as smalJ as you want 
them to be. but you have to woric lo ihc con- 
straints of the screen si/e. The screen can be of 
any vinual si/c. eg overscan, as it is possible 
10 scroll through ihc whole image at will. Once 
the screen has been k>adcd in. though, it's lime 
for the fun bit. 

Grabbing fonts is child's play. The pro-

accepts Amiga fonts. The secoiid part of the 
program actually allows you to take any slan- 
dard Amiga Ibni. and then put il into a 
viandaid IFF screen. 

The main purpiwe for This is lo allow ihc use 
of a paint package's superior editing capabili* 
ties lo manipulate or just touch-up a font in 
lieu of a foni editor. It also allows you to 
change the font infoimaiion to an exicni, by 
re-grabbmg characters from the screens to 
alier their posmonal mformaiion such as 
height and kemmg, as when editing characters 
like before. This process also doubles as a u.se- 
ful way of creating screens full of fonts, to 
print out and use as spec sheets, to see whether 
or not some fonts have cenain chatucters 
designed for them. 

FontQrobher is an OK program, in fact it's 
quite a goixl program, but it does have some 
pniential fyr mipTovenient. The ability lo grab 
,kLid edit colour fonts would have been nice, 
and a slightly lioiter user interface would also 
have gone down rather well - it is mainly 
menu driven and it does its job. but n i^ ■'\\<:n 
a bit sluggish, especially when editing the 
character positions. 

There are a few bugs, in that ii will noi 
load all fonts, bui perhaps this is due To non- 
standard fonts that do not quite match up to 
formal specifications, though you can still load 
them up in Deluxe Pmru. It's a program that 
can be pui to giHid use by creating goud-loi^- 
ing new fnnis especially for applications such 
as desktop video or just generally to extend the 
capabihiies of any program that uses the 
.Amiga's fonts.

THE CLI IS CFRTVINLY a powerful beasi. 

but ifs 3lso domed j^k^jni to use, li's alt 
righl if you've invested kii* of lime aifcd trou- 
ble leaniing how lo use ii, ^uI if nol you're 
simply stuck with no W4> of jEetiing access to 
ull that power. Until w>mebody ckverly came 
up with the ideaofthcdireciof>'unUij. 

The Amiga's grcal ad^aniagi- as a mouse- 
controlled computer is rh^i wkj can make 
control of anything as simple ji poinimg to 
a bii of the KKcti and clicking a bution. TTiis 
is what dirrcioo' utilities do. replacing all 
Iho^ hidden CLI commands wiih a li^ of 
options on the screen, atl OKely laid oui for 
yoo to click on, 

Dirciioiy Opus is the laiesi in a whole 
scries of easy-to-use CU rcfriacements. It 
comes on one disk nidi a handy insiallation 
program for putiing ii on lo your hard dnve, 
md also iitcluded on the diA arc several 
Public Domain utility pro^ams- 

Opus has all Ihe function!! ihat you would 
expect to see from a CLI interface program: all 
the standard ^housekeeping' functions that 
allow you to copy or move Tiles from one 
place lo another, delete file* and so on. But u 
also goes much further than ihit. 

|t has the ability to Tecogm«< many differ- 
cm types of fik: IFF. graphics, fonts and 
8SVX sound sample (Ue«. If a Tile of any of 
these types is in the current directory Itsilng 
and you double-click on it. Opui acis accord- 
ingly: automatically dL^pU\mg picture^, icons 
or font files, or pla>mg the relevant sound 
sample. It alM> recognne^ SoundTracker music 
m^vlules and plays them »hcn «lectcd. 

When ii comes to nridmg text files, it can 
even provide a very nice rcadmg interface, 
with van able scroll - it even allows you 
to read tiles that have been crunched with the 
excellent PowerPacker auiomaticaJly. using 
the Powc^Packe^,Libfa^^ . Thtt's nc* all of it 
though. Li also allows you to view ANIM 
brush^Sn and even CanDo decks using a 
Can Do. Library. 

AiKtther useful feature i'l the Encrypt c^ion.

ALL ASriKINC; TARKNTS wjiii ihfif \iU\c 
Jonnie io dif well: to grow up big. --mxig unci 
clever. \\'s ihe mental exercise which >& mobt 

Uifllcult to pniviJc. which i^ where rumpress 
have hii the luil *iti Ihe head wuh version 4 of 
their lively educulionji st^fiware. 

The Ncni's is divided into throe dilterenl 
age gruops; prc-schooL tor the under fives; 
Ihen primary -ichctol, which is "iplil in iwo: 
Tne-to-scvenN and ^even-io-clevcns. Rach age 
group i*H a'.s^K.'iaied with a diffea^nt. idcntifi- 
able, 'sircci-crcd' character ih.ic ihe resjx-ctive 
Bge groups eaii idemify with, nicse ihiirat-ters 
have pruved very auccu^sful ihiuughoui Iho 
series and Jl makes sense to use ihcm: every- 
one rcmeioK-'r^ their fav<iunie toy or characier. 
whether it uas 71»>ma\ ihc Tank Engine, an 
Caglc-cyed AclHin Man or your gooj. old- 
fashiontfd teddy-bear.., 

Nalurully Teddy appears once again m the 
Fun Svhfiol scries, as in ^ preceding vcr- 
sians. He is u hit niore of a dude- though, than 
RcKjseveh's Ted. Yes. this Ted wouldn't K>iik 
out of pl;K~e m an BMP video as he dcNU a 
baseball tap and a pair o\ slaluiory Rccbolu. 

The idea i>r Ihe program is (hat the parent or 

icaehijr siis with the child on ihe llrst lime 
through ihe learning ganiev Obviously with 
prc-sehiK>l kids you're going to have to take 
vt>mt- lime to go through key commands and 
mouse pmficiency, but there i* >i unifitfinity 
ihrough^>ut the range, widi the -ianie keys 
fspace-biir and the reium key) K'ing used in 
ihe niajoniy ol the games m each age r;inyc 

Our k-sl child. HolJ>. i^gcd rive-ard-a-haH 
Mion grasped the rudimenis ^il ihe programs 
(and the ncvcssity lo change disks for the oihcr 
half of ^ games) and wils soon ploughing 
through ihom by herself. She enjoyed Ihc more 
fun ]c^cK out of the si^ that arc included on 
ihe two disks, especially the painting section, 
which is culled i\'thi\ l\iir\t. 

The plot gi>es that Ted has etmu- in Irom 
Ihc playground, but kind old Icatiier Ted has 
lei ihem spend the rest of the morning painting 
- oh. wasn't hfe so easy then* It's simple 
enough to use; the compuicr \crcen represents 
your easel and a blank piece ol paper. When 
you press Help, il will display what shapes and 
colours Ihe different keys will pRxluce, 

So all our young Holly did was find a 
shape, which yiHi can uw m the same way yi>u 
mighi a paint brush with the help of die 
mouse. T^is section is great for kids lo explore 
the computer kcybviard - it's noi js though 
ihey can make any mistakes, or gel ihcmscives 
covered in paint scj they can just be left to ufie 
their imagniaiions und produce their own pic- 
tures. There aic three different ihemeiJ pictures 
that they can work towards - Beach, Country 
and Playgr^'und - and U»cy can prtniuce their 
very own fields full of swings, roundabouts 
imd psychedelic cows?

Ihe mher lun k'sd is Kn'tioki'. which Hollv 
enjoyed, bul she found it went Ujo quickly for 
her 10 sing along with ihe eight miricn 
rhymes. A second lc\el allows you to tap the 
rhyihin at your own speed and is g«xl f<Jr 
leaching about rhyme and listening to a beat. 

The oiher four games arc standard stufJ, 
Bach is divided into three or four difficulty 
levels, depending on how advanced a child is 
with read i up and 'rithmclic 

The AdiiiiUm sci. ii-i. 1^ ^cl in ihe classrtKJin

ihe child count up to nine, if he or ^die is suc- 
cessful in answering a question, a single 
Teddy per answer can leave ihc room. 



Under Fives 

£24,99 BEuropress 

Ihe fun Trairt section makes kids match 
words with pictures: hai. king, fish, boat and 
axe(!) arc jusi some examples. If you gel all 
Ihe questions right you ore rewarded whh a 
nice little animation of the 'chuff chuff 
pullmg away wiih a hearty [ooi. Each level in 
every Fun Sthoiri section has these dinky Inile 
unimaiions which encourage the kids to gel the 
answers correct so that they can see what 
Teddv will do nest. 

l:\tendinji your kid's vocabulary is takcit 
ime stage further with TftUiy's Hinist'. where 
ifie> learn diflcreni (xirts of ihe house a^ well 
as being encouraged to think about colours 

The final game for the under fives is yei 
another numbers game and finishes off the 
whole thing quite nicely by requiring the child 
U' i^uess what ihe number of the missing bed- 
iiine siorv book is, Wiih each t-orrecl answer a 
fittle led rolls over and ^oes lo sleep. 'Time

KRFDDIK THK hRiM; is your guide Ihrauph 
Pondsvillf Park. Yes. Qie fun for kids in 
Fun School is enjoying the characters and 
reading through each program with mum or 
dad. The sei-up is the same is the other iwo in 
the seTies; s\\ games with various difficuliy 
levels lu get ihrough. 

Following Hrcddie through his unites will 
sull need parcnial supervision, however 
computer-literate your kids are. because some 
games an; Taxing for average fivc-tO'Seven- 
year-old?t. The program follows ihe Natit>iial 
Cumc:ulum. hut ii seems hkely that only a 
gifted six- or seven-year-old could Loinplele 
some of the tasks. And what a horrible leoling 
of failure when they can't complete what 
appears to them to be a fun game. 

English. Maihs and Infomi^tion Technology 
(typing, basically) are core subjects covered. 
Tbe BaskfftbaU game covers the alpti^bcl ^d 




couming. Filling in the missing leuer from the 
alphabet is what's required. A collcjigue who 
was peering over my shoulder didn't immedi- 
ately get il because iho alphabet was in reverse 
order and with a couple of letters missing in 
ihe sequence. Puiimg the diffLculiy flaw aside, 
though, the program docs flow along nicely, 
and h packaged very well. It comes with a 
glossy booklet divided into two socuons.

lob that bit easier... 



The first is the stor>', the second is the parenl- 
leacher guide which gives a breakdown of 
what each game is trying to achieve: for cxam- 
ple> when Freddie is building the Log Cabin, 
the aim i<> 10 teach addition and subtraction up 
to 20, then 30. and the 2-lo-l2iimes tables. 

Th€ Infurmation Technohigy section is 
in^ptinant in a computer package The game 
here is Typing and it aims to encourage a child 
to undcniand the basics of a word processor. 
The aim of the game i^ to stop Freddie being 
harassed by a crocodile: by touching the 
appropriate keys on Ihe keyboard you help 
Freddie hop away to the safely of the ponJ. 
but you've got to be quick, which encourages 
kids to learn where the letters arc. 

TTie other games are nicely done, with 
l^eddie whizzing off on his credibUity skate- 
board if you get the answers right in 
Simpkeeper- Kids have to work out if you buy 
some bccfbiiigers for £1.72. and you pay with 
£2, how much change you get. The problem is. 
though, the kid not cjniy has to do some hefty 
subtraction, but understand coinage as well: 
thai there are tO(t pence in a pound. 

Oppoiites teaches that light is opposite to 
left, near to far. success lo failure, truth to Ljcs 
and so oa ihcavy stuff) and has some groovy 
frog-hopping animation. And finally Library 
sets the hapless task of llling all the bix^kri 
away in alphabeiiLal order: which must be at^ 
popular with kids as doing the washing-up, but 
Freddie makes it a bit more fun! 

Fun Schotyf will not actually teach your 
kids. It is an exccUeni package for revision and 
encouraging the child to want to learn more, 
but don't expect it to work miracles. If you get 
a question wrong it won't sit and explain why 
it's wrong and how to go about geitmg the 
question right next lime - artificial intelligence 
hasn't got this faryei!

HKRK IS THF, frr^ major chang*.- in tUi: new 
fan Schoo. scries iram the previouji 
Fka School ^. tK-'cause lurtipfcsv iiavc done a 
bii of marl.^i ro^arch and found oui that 
SiUTiiiiy ihe Spy, who is ttnlcniimcd A^cni Q. 
is fdT more popular rhon ihe poor rejected 
Hiil'l-'ic The RotKil. Bill ihi^ has allowed for 
sorne t^xceUcni \ccnarios and animal ions 
involving Sammv a** he spiev his way round 
ihcuorld 

Thii ieciion comes on jusi one di,>k, w 
therr 1' no disk-swapping hassle, hui il lakes 
Ut longer lo toad each game when you hop in 
and oui t*f t'ach e^ercisr. This is also The TitsI 
lime kid-f arc iniroduci'd lo Geo^phy and 
Hjsiory. about iho a^^ chi^ri'n in schools arc 
going 10 be sian teaming <ilmi)i either countries 
and undcr^ianding aboui lime and ihe pasi 

The maihcmatics sccii(Mi is ihe imroduC' 
lory section and is divided in in thrtv difffreni 
levels, based on Sammy v-ho is chasing ihe 
^Inuble agcnl. in order lo do iht* he musi pass 
\i.; pfopoTlions icsT wi by (he double ageni. 
il.cn he moves on lo ihc Laboratory uhcre he 
haH to collect a secret formula and Tind out ihc 
location of the final Test The maths tests are 
on propoTiiont^' for example there are 10 spies 
and Sammy has m work out how many of 
[hem have ^ot moustaches. A selection of 
.in^wers are given on screen and by using the 
cuT%or arrows us possible lo swap ihe answers 
so that they are perccniages, decimal values or 
fr-ictions. If Sammy gets the answers corrccl 
Ihen the double agent will pass him the sccrcj 
message; the end-of-level animation. 

The beauty of this urction is the change- 
ability of ihe answer?:: a child may fmd 
pi^reciitages easy, but have difficulty with dec' 
im^l v:ilues. so they can interchange between 
the (w<> and leain to become just as familiar 
widi the second u ihe first. 




The difficulty level again may well be quite 
taxing for some el even -year-olds, but just 
because there are three lesis does not mean 
every child who buys Fun Si/ioiil has lo make 
It to the top levels of each section. 

The other two maths levels are Etihansf 
Rales and Timehtbiv. The laUer is excellent in 
helping a child unde^^tand lime, and al Ihe 
same lime learn about addition and subtrae- 
lion. This scchon is set in an airpon depailure 
lounge, and Sammy has to work out htm !i>ng 
flights have been delayed for. Another imjx>r- 
tant lesson for kids to leain about: silting 
arouiKl in Gatuick wondering how much 
longer your flight is going to be delayed? 

Exchange Raid's may be a bit problematic 
because the figures kids will be dealing wiib 
arc quite high, especially when you gel 
involved with, for examplcn Italian Lire. Plus 
They will have to be able lo recognise all the 
couniries" ciffrencies and flags. 

EuroPres* have had a bit of a challenge 
vsrih ihe hisioiy and geography secUons, 
Ivcause these aren't aa easy lo transfer lo ihe 
computer as siruighl forward spelling and 



The top end of the Fun School range takes 
in a couple more core subjects from the 
National Curriculum. Gary Lord stretches 

his grey matter over some taxing History 

and Geography lessons. 



IM^ tests. Spy Trmels. works well: Sammy 
has to fmd his way to various cimtmenis. 
oceans, countries, cilies. seas and major ciiies. 
Children will find ihis section difUculi: (here 
are many seas and rivers which I had difficulty 
finding Ihe locHlion of. but Ihe program can 
actually show children where places are. If 
you've got lo direct Sammy lo the Pacific 
Ocean and you've placed him m the AUaniic, a 
compa.s^ pops up pointing you in ihc righl 
direction. The infuriating thing is you have to 
be very accurate, so if you've got to locate 
Paris you have to put the cursor exaclly on it, 
and the world map you are given is very small: 
there were some debates in the office as lo 
where predsfiy it is. so children will have 
problems but will leant from their mistakes. 

History and general knowledge will be use- 
ful depending on what eras children have been 
studying. Ocwrr Duies for example asks ques- 
tions like "When was the llrsl public dentist 
opened". The ihing is history is more than 
dates, irs not necessarily important to know 
the precise date ^hen the first deniKtry was 
opened bui v,hy it was opened: ihe effect on 
public health and the stale taking more respon- 
sibility for its population: but ihi^ is maybe a 
slightly tricky topic for something at the level 
of Fun Siinwt to lake on board- 
As a whole, ihc series is vcr^' consistent 
and could be used through the majority of the 
child's fonnativc year^. It is nicely animated, 
the Miund can become decidedly irritating, but 
no more so than some of the lop shiwi-em-ups. 
It's important (o remember ihai ihey will help 
reinforce what your children have already 
leamt. and would be an excelleni replacement 
lo boring homework ^^^ignments. Beware of 
some of the levels in each age group; they can 
gel quite advanced and they may in some 
cases leach many parents a thing or two. ©

EDUCATION 



Helping children write their own stories is 

taken one step further with this kid's 

animation package, Giiry Lord creates 

scripts and animates some stories that 

would easily rival the BBC's Mr Benn.., 



THIS PROGRAM TAKRS pjirenring and 
kaming fsr beyond Listen with Mtrther. and is 
galaxies ahead of Jarkunory. This stor>lxiok 
IS. according lo the authors (or should we say 
^pfogrammers^} a very complex one. 

Magic SToryhook wlJI help yoo gd ihe 
xnofil 0U1 of your Amiga, because ai its most 
basic level it is a whole loi of fun: watching, 
and adding to, animated stuncs on your com- 
puier Bui ai its most diffjcult. it will probably 
sUelch parents and children alike. 

Its starting age is five. You start listening 
to the sloiies and waLching the animations, and 
laicr adding sprites (pcopit and objcctsJ and 
noises to the stones. Mafiw Sturyhttiyk also lel^ 
older kids add their own sprites, backgrounds* 
ind even their own animations and story lines: 
serious creative wniing^ 

Loading is a two-disk affair: the main disk 
and ih*?n the Books di^k which contains five 
different stories {Goidilm-ks. Robin to the 
Rffscuf. The Angry Dragon. The Seifish Giuni 
and finally The Christmaa Story}. 

To help you is a veiy deiaited l()0-pagc 
booklet, which gives you a clue as to the depth 
of the program. Gelling -Started takes you 
through loading a story, step-hy-step. And you 
will have to go through it with your child First, 
because there are so many different elements 
and mouse conflguratmns whi^h your average 
lot will not be able to work through-

The Angry Dragon, and as when you click on 
the story the loading screen of the first page 
animates on the page: sprites mn across the 
screen and cheers and roars blast out. 

The screen is divided into three, Tbc top 
third is the actual book where you will sec the 
pictures and words. This rev-'mblcs an open 
book wiih the other leaves of the book ai the 
side: clicking on the next page with the mouse 
allows you to turn back and forth. 

The nfixt pan of the screen is where you, 
the reader/animator, come in. The sprites, 
sounds and words to put m your story will 
appear as you build up each tale. Ii^s up to 
your child to continue (he animation^piciures 
of the story after your first t<kken animation. 

The final third of the screen is Ihe Main 
Menu Screen .which is the control area ihat 
lets you change between screens: whether you 
want to change the sounds, words or pictures, 
and allows you to access the Screen Editor 

To stait adding characters to your story 
you click the left mouse bunon for a selection 
of sprites. To get them in yoMT animation you 
click a sprite and place it in the picture. If you 
click on "oops" you tan erase the characters 
that you don't want in your picture

mutions> giving them a professional look. 

There ore nic^ little touches too: the mouse 
pointer is a green pencil when picking your 
sprites, but changes to a magic wand when 
usmg the menu. The magic part is when you 
play the animation, and the sprites come alive: 
dragons breath fire, clouds drift across the sky 
md gisnis stomp along. 

It doesn't follow a specific educational 
structure, but allows children to he creative. At 
a basic level it helps teach sentence structure: 
presenting wcffds to make up the story. These 
are colour-coded and help explain how a sen- 
tciKC goes logeibcr: verbs - doing words - are 
in red. nouns are in blue, describing words are 
in green and d>e rest are in grey- 
Once yuur children have gmped adding 
sprites, sounds and words lo animations, and 
wants to do more, ihcy can have a go at adding 
their own 'ipnxcs and backgroutids. This is 
aimed at eight -year-olds upwards and resem- 
bles an early point package: the nexi stage on 
from here would probably be lypaint. 

The &liting screen has three elements; the 
palette. 16 different colours; the menu strip, 
where you pick your tools depending on the 
shape you wont to make: circles, lines and a 



variety of sprites. Plus three main windows: 
BackgTfiund i^ the current scene being ani- 
mated; Sketchpad is the place to expenment 
with your own drawings; and the Scn>ll win- 
dow IS used to scroll spntes during editing. 

The Editor is very complex and will take 
up a parent's time to become familiar with, so 
that you cun help your child design its own 
stories. Children will need a iral interest to get 
up to this level, which will take some time to 
become acquamted with. By the time they are 
capable of being left alone to add lo current 
stories diey might find il somewhat limiting 
with stories like Goldilocks, but they con then 
create their own material. 

Plenty of thought has gOU Suo Magic 
Sioryh{Ntk. but the Screen Kditor is not very 
user-friendly and is too confusing for young 
children. But if you and your kids are prepared 
to persevere, plenty of fun can be had: if not 
you stilL get excellent value and younger kids 
will love playing and animaimg. C&

GENLOCKS 




TTiere are a multitude of genlocks arriving on 
the Amiga scene. But which one do you need? 
Gary Whitelcy has rated and reviewed a broad selection 
that will satisfy both the hobbyist, who just wants to add 
scroNy credits to their sister's wedding video, or the hearty 
professional who wants to get down to some serious anima- 
tion and graphics on the latest corporate promo.

A MISCONCKHTION abi>ui ycnlcnk^ is Ihcy 
-irt- mcTcly devices for overlaying, or as U is 
iL'rmcii in vidcivspcak. 'Keying', graplins on

video priM:essing and cffccls. These extras arc 
noi nctt'svary for genUtkinp hul mighr wcU he 
useful where cijira creaiivjiy is concerned 

Wnh new video rormai*; like S VHS and 
Vidc<j8, and increasing popularity <ir hmadcasi 
systems such as M2 and Beiacam, the range of 
genlocks has lAidened lo encompasfi the 
higher-quality componcm signals i\fC, YUV 
and RCiB) as weN as the (radJiiLpr>;il composite 
<CVBSj ones, while pnces have fallen as 
quality and features have incrcascd- 

Tlo%s t\n^ a genlock lock then'* In order lo get 
one video signal keyed on to another it isn'i 
enough to simply add them together. 1j:vc1s 
need conlmlling, as do the times when the sig- 
nals coincide. Timing is crucial to television - 
and I don't mean getting the news on al Ten - 
otherwise we wouldn't have the illusion that 
we pcK^cive as moving pictures. 

A UK television picture, called a 'frame', 
h made up <if 625 hori/ontal hnes of picture 
mformaticm. Bach frame's suhdivided into two 
'fields' of 313.5 lines each, the first is com- 
posed of all 'cxid' lines (1st. 3rd, 5ih etc) and 
the 'olher^ of all the even ones, though num- 
Kring IS regarded as being by fields father 
than frame. !^o the lines in the 'odd' field are 
numbered one to 312.5 and the even 313 to 
625, The fields arc displayed in rapid succes- 
si<Mi - ftrst odd. then even, with each display 
lasting only one 50ih of a second - at this 



speed the hrain perceives the Iwo fields as 
being 'intcrlaccd\ resulting in one image. 
Since there are 25 of these frames a seciind. 
the illusion nf movement is easdy created. 

If you wciv ^cmdenng why they are dis- 
played Ml fields a second, it*s because UK 
240V electrical supply runs at 50H/-. makmg i( 
the idcjil master 'clock' for the system. 
Similarly, in America, where there is a MOV 
supply with a fiOK/ frequency the NTSC 
(American TV standard) system runs jl 60 
llelds (30 frames) a second. These timing dif- 
ferences are why American equipment and 
signals cannol be directly mixed with PAL 
(the UK standard) equipment. 

It Is impfjrtant. with split-second liming, that 
additions to a video signal, must be timed ic» 
coincide with the lines and fields of that sig- 
nal. Since the start of each line and field are 
Td<?ntified by electronic markers (known as 
Imc sync and blanking rcspeciivclyi ynu can 
use them like a clivk to set the timing, instead 
of using the Amiga's own internal cUH:k. A 
gcnkitk's purp(>M: is to slave ihe computer to 
video (by GENeraiing LOCKj. so any graf^ies 
pnxluced by the Amiga will be synchronised 
to the video signal arriving at the gcnUitk, 




A 1«l«vi(ion picture i( 
made up irom Iwo 
fields^ nornnilly ihey 
would not be displayed 
together like ihis but 
»lH>wn <onse<vtiv«ly

lull-stieen widtM. In 
lh« <entre li how rhe 
veiulting inlerloie i^ 
ittn. giving the illusion 
of one inherent, whok 
imoge - fhe frame. 




Thus Jinc one of the Amiga signal will coin- 
cide with line one of the video signal, frame 
one with frame one and so on. And with both 
signals in sync effects such as overlaying, 
minng and fading can be correctly made. The 
mixed image can then be outpoi to a video 
recorder, ft)r instance. 

Now. all ihLs is ver^ well, but what happens 
when (he video input is substandard'.' If. for 
example, a poor quality VHS tape \s being 
played on an old VHS machme - and some of 
the sync information is lost When the genlock 
receives poor information it cannot always 
lock the Amiga up, and instability can occur. 
No matter how good a genlock is, Ihe quality 
of the incoming video signal is critical. 

Always remember every time a video signal 
\\ pnvessed (unless it*s entirely digital) you're 
going lo lose quality, Systems with lower 
hiindwidths fie less room for information on 
ihe lape) like VHS will inevitably lose more 
iban higher handwidihs (such as HctacamI and 
composite signals will degrade faster than 
comptmcm ones like S-VHS or HiH, Similarly, 
poorer quality lihough not always cheaper) 
genlocks can spoil your signals. Because all 
!.'cnTocks are connected lo the RGB monitor 




port you may fimJ somcnmt■^ you uinnoi use a 
1084 monitor, for msiiinte, as the KGB mfor- 
maiion is nol relumed thniggh the jicnlock for

creaiJon mun: diftleull. iX'grudation is a prob- 
lem only overcome by using higher siandard, 
wider bandwidth cquipmcni or by the use oi 
expensive video prTXC%sing equipment. 

There are now gcntoclLs avail^hk which run 
the whole range of tastes and pcvkets. t>ul any 
genlock for ihe Amiga requires at least three 
basit' thin^is - namely connections for Amiga 
graphies in. video in and minLcd video out- 
From simple bejiinnin^s there is ample scope 
to iidd all sons of entms - soliw-itL- control,

KIADALE'S NtW CENLOCK is auned at 
the semi'professional/profcssionaJ market, 
going by the price and the S-VHS features. 
SuTphsingly it amvp-s as two boxes! Along 
wilh a modified 8S02 genlock you alsii gel a 
liirj^cr, wedge-shaped box with knobs on This 
IS the mix/fade/wipe controller and it eonneets 
direcdy lo the genlock unit via a lengdi of 
cable. It wasn't long, though, bcfon; i was 
having problems. The inicgrul RGB ribbon 
cable from the B802 is very shoii, whiL-h 
causes problems getting it to Bit sifely on the 
desk ■ especially if you have a IMK) or 2tKXJ 
and a standard si/£ desk. And if you're think- 
ing of getting a 3000 Tower you'll have lo 
prop (he 8802 up if you want to connect iL 

The rest of the connetimns arc straight- 
forward. Conneet a video input to the miner 
unit (either S-VHS or PAL tompositc). then 
connect the video output, hook the RGB back 
out to Ufe Amiga monitor, connect the genlock 
and plug in the power. Switch on y<jur Amiga 
and you're ready to go. Note that while both 
S-VHS and composite inputs and outputs are 
;ivadable you tan only have one input in use at 
a lime {selected by using a slider switch) 
although both S-VHS and comptTsilc outputs 
L'an be used simuhaneousLy. 

The sep:irate mixer/fader/ wipe unit has a 
host of knobs and switches on-board. Ihcrc 
are four different sliders dial are marked (fn>m 
left to right) Mix Fade, Wipe, Cross Hade and 
Input Fade, There are also four small push 
switches which arc used to select the current 
wipe pattern, lastly there is a rotary switch for 
selecting the key mode (Foreground mode I. 
Background. Amiga Only. Hxtemal Video 
or h'oreground 2). 

Wilh such a wealth of controls come plenty 
of pormuiyiions which arc achieved hy a mix- 
ture of sliders and switches. Ilicrc are If} 
wipes available, all of the straight -edged, 
veiiical or hon/x>ntal variety and the various 
combinations of switching each results in a 
different wipe being produced - ranging from

ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS 




GenfocTcs are aiiTnregra) pad oT what's calM 'desktop vld»o . 
This threatens to do to video graphics, animation artd titling what 
desktop publishing has done to (he worid of JournaHBm and 
prinUng: taking it out of the hands of pros' and thus allowing the 
enthusiasl lo do a professional job, but with just the aid of a 
home comptilB* at the comfort of their own desk. 

What a genlock does In simplisljc terms is It takes the two 
signals: the one that s coming out of the Amiga (your video 
tiltes or graphics), and tne signal of the VCf* (the video you want 
to add them to) and mixes these two signals together, so thai 
they are synchronised. A term that is often used ^s a vktoo 
source' which Is |us1 a tech^e term tor referring to the Amiga or a 
v^deo tape or racordor. 



plain up, down, lelt or right to comer bojies 
and finally square to centre when all four basic 
shapes are combined. 

During lading the position of one slider 
may luA only affect the outcome of another but 
give rise to oombinaU'tn- <-\ Amiga/Video 
which could be eiiher Mipcs. keys or key- 
wipes, Amiga-<inLy or ViUlu only faded lu or 
from black. And here's another small gripe - 
the good-looking crinktc finish of the case 
interferes wiih the shders and makes smooth 
fading harder than necessary. 

Weli> what abuul the quality'.' OK. in general 
it's good, but it is disappointing to see ghosdy- 
wipc edges {appearing as dark and light lines) 
when they really shouldn't be there. This 
apparently can be corrected, but (he unit would 
have to go back and be disassembled to make 
the adjustments. There was also some digital 
break up on die edges of wipes left mid- 
screen. Otherwise, though, keying is good and 
all the controls are simple to use, once you 
have u grasp of their functiiins, Ihcmgh the 
selector switch has several positions which 
aren t marked, but still selects signal posiuons. 

Overall 1 wish 1 felt better about this genlock 
than I do. Sure, it works pretty well, but why 
the two bones? Presumably they are for 
upgiading cJiisting H&02 owners. The connect- 
ing leads are su short that everythmg may as 
well all be In the same case - there certainly 
seems lo be room* The build quality appears 
high and the documentation is generally good, 
though there is a lack of detail about all the 
functions of the control unit. Also the range of 
wipes will only have a limited use, especially 
without any positioning control. Su I reckon 
there^s room for impr^^vemcnl yet. 

iryou already have an 8Kf>2 genlock and wish 
to take the upgrade path to ihe Super HKl>2 you 
can do this for £420.00, You'll also have lo 
return your R802 lo Marcam for modification.

Amongst the league leaders, this is a genlock for the professional, designed to 
provide the solid output that is necessary to satisfy the sinngcnt broadcast

already have video mixers and effects gci>eraiors there is little point in adding 

them just as some expensive extras, though 
the opiional controller will provide fade 
and mixing levels.

Vortex ATonce-Plus 




The 16 MHz PC/AT-Emulator For £ 248 
For Amiga 500, A 500 plus, A 2000 



vortex ATonce-PIus is the high 
performance 16 Bit CMOS 
80286 AT emulator for the 
Amiga 500, A500 plus and 
A2000. It converts your Amiga 
into an AT compatible 
computer with multi- processor 
and multi -operating system 
facilities. It provides a 16 MHz 
clock frequency and offers a 
Norton SI of 16,2. 
Each ATonce-Plus is supplied 
with 512 KB vortex FAST-RAM 
and a socket for an optional 
80C287-12 arithmetic co- 
processor. Without any further 
RAM you get full 640 KB DOS 
memory. Memory above 1 MB 
can be used as Extended or 
Expanded Memory. Windows 
3,0 runs unrestrictedly in the 
Protected Mode. 



ATonce-Plus runs as a task 
within AmigaDOS. It does not 
affect the normal operation of 
your Amiga and is totally 
transparent when not in use. 
You may work with PC/AT 
programs under MS-DOS or 
DR-DOS as well as with your 
Amiga under AmigaDOS. 
ATonce-Plus accesses the 
entire environment of your 
Amiga: Commodore compatible 
hard disk systems as well as 
internal and external disk 
drives, the serial (mouse) and 
parallel interface, sound, RTC 
and CMOS RAM. 
Video emulations such as EGA 
and VGA in a monochrome 
graphic mode, CGA with 16 
colors, Hercules, Olivetti and 
ToshibaSlOO are available. 



The ATbnce-Plus Gate Array, 
the Chip-Level Emulation and 
the ATonce-Plus AT-BIOS 
guarantee an AT emulation 
with the utmost degree of 
compatibilty and provide your 
Amiga with full system 
reliability. 

ATonce-Plus is delivered with 
installation and emulation 
software (no DOS) and a 
detailed users manual. 
The compact SMT-PCB plugs 
directly into the socket of the 
68000 CPU without any 
soldering, so all expansion 

slots remain free, o o ^ o 
ATonce-Plus for only at ^4o. 
For further information please 
contact your local Amiga 
dealer or call CompuServe at 
100015,330.

a vcr>' reasonable program. 

Oh. nearly forgot. There's something else on ihc 
disk called MirtiTtHfl (Rian' Knarr), It's a simple icon

il can be useful occasionally. 



"All hutches closed... Board is all green... Dive! Dive! 
Dive!" iSVtj Lance, in case you haven'l guessed is a 
submarine simulator. Unlike all previous aitempls at 
this tricky subject, it's got a relatively original plot, 
simple controls and goix) gr^iphics. 

Alicn.s from another galaxy have conqueied earth, 
smashed the US forces and are using the Russian 



equivalents to police the planet. The only thing left 10 
defeat the invadcrt in Sra LarH-e. a modified Tndeni 
submarine crewod by varying nationalities. 

The idea is that the aliens have set up 20 bases 
around the planet. You have to hunch Tridcni missiles 
at ihcm. These have ii snull nuclear warheadn as well 
as biological waHu.lJ^ filled with a virus toxic I0 Ihe 
aliens only. The nuke penetrates the force Held 
defence, and the virus knocks out the aliens. 

The lirst thing you have to do is tool up. As well as 
the Tridents. Sea Lnanee can cany Tomahawk cruise 
missiles. Subroc II anti-submarine weapons and con- 
ventional torpedoes. How many of each you tarry is up 
Wyou-but il takes a brave commander to set ^il with 
just toipedoes, 

Haying Sea Lame is easy to pick up. There are just 
four screens to master - the bridge is used to alter 
cour?>e. speed and depth, and also to abandon Uiip or 
increase air pressure 10 combat breaches in the hull. 
Sutellite maps can be downloaded whilst surfaced.

The Weapons screen shows a sonar view of the local

Damage control screen monitors damage and n;pair^.

Classic Games 



Pat McDonald looks back at the best that the PD has 



produced over the past years. Whether you're an arcade freak or 
a strategy type, you II find something to insert here 

1 SEA LANCE 

As reviewed this month. Sea Lance is one of the best stoDs ever at making a submarine simulator with a 
soprilsticaie<l background Thais easy lo play. Great fun tf you like launching nuclear missiles in a 
good cause (sick, am I not). 

2 AIR WARRIOR 

An odd PO program. Air Worrtor is a rilgbt simulator of World War I and ■ llrcrafi Aflhough it's faMy bor- 
ing as it is- you can link Into Ihe network witti a modem and compete against whole squadrons manned by 
human pilots. Great fun if you have a modem, so-so. though, if you don't 



Jeff MInter s stab at producing a Fotyoiron clone, Uamfftron has lols ot strobe elfecis, genuine arcade 
noise and (he hairy mammals commonly associated wilh Minler s work. There are 100 screens ot absolute 
non-stop blasting that has had the whoJe wotia strammg at (heir joysticks There are, ttiough. a couple Of 
bugs in two-player mode though. 




4 IVIISSILE COJVUVUVND 

Max BUhead s attempt to recreate the old flashing screen lull of incoming nukes is |usl as playable as the 
original. Featuring some interlace graphics Ihai aren't that fhckery (for once) and a mean line In sound 
effects. It's become very popular all over the place. 



rjot strictly speaking a game at ali this, it's more of an educational program for young children, teaching 
them about the common dangers found in every household, it uses a poini-and-cilck system that s very 
slick and easy to master One of tne belter (and more useful) pieces of educational software around. 

A TRUCKIN' 

Australia is so btg that ii needs a t^uge fleet of transport vehicles to keep h running Tnrckin ' Is a simula- 
tion of running your own Aossie transport company. Start off with one riq and try to meet contracts as 
la>t aa you can. Not an easy game to win. because there are plenty of random eJements - but quite satis- 
fylng when you make a payoff.

7 TINY BALL 

Surely Lhe smallest game evef written. Tiny Bait crams the whole game of baseball Into the weenlest 
space. It s played on (he Workbench screen {useful for when your machine is tied up ray tracing or what- 
ever) and uses trie mouse entirely tor control. Cute and Iota ol lun. 



The t>es1 fruit machine s^mutator evef. Dirty Cash lets ybu pit your wits and reactions against those spin- 
ning reels. Full ol features found on real arcade machines, it s an addictive pursufl to try and beat the 
system. It also records an on-going jackpot plus record wmmngs to disk loO- 

9 IMAGIC FOREST 

The best arcade game to be written with AMOS- W7/f //<Wllf isn't bad e^her^ has a standard plot: "Jump 
and run to collect the apples \ Playing it Is a different story though, as the bad guys tend to have you 
more often than not. Requires a lot ol joystick skill to do well, 

1 O INSIDERS CLUB 

Ever wanted to play the stock market? Vou know, buying shares in companies, launching a takeover bid 
and reissuing shares? This game lets you do all that and more- Vou can read Ihe incoming futures mar- 
kets, make calculated decJS>ons on share prices and even cheat - get some inside tr^formatlon from the 
C;ub itself Fun. if difficult.

PD UTILITIES 




Classic Utilities 



Want to know what impressed technical Impresario 
Pat McDonald the most over the past 12 months? Well now's 
your chance. Here's 1 of the best. 

1 BUDDBASE 

This is probably one of ihe smallesl (i1 works on a O.SMb machine) af^d possibly one of ihe easiesl 
databases, in lerms of seltlng-up and using. BuddBase Es a winner- 11 can handle very large database9> 
because they're all on disk, rather than being held in memory. It's siso quite fast, which Is rather unusual 
for disk-based databases. 



The is the best boot block ulNJly, BootX can recognise many different types of boot btock virus. t1 can 
afso read game boot blocks and save them on to a separate disk. So if a virus wipes the boot block, you 
can put the original back on- 

3 JVIVK 2*1 

This Is the last versron of Master Virus Killer to be released into the Public Domain (2.2 and aL>ove are not 
PD), MVK 2.1 knows aboul 130 different viruses. Including the elusive ROLE disk- validator vkus. 
Although a bit dated for a virus killer, it can still recognise the most for one individual program.

4 EUECTROCAD VI. a 

The fuLI program of this demo isn't tn fact PD. But even with just the demo, you can draw your own elec- 
tronic schematic diagrams and printed circuit board layouts, and print ttiem out too. For electronics 
enthusiasts everywhere. 

5 IVIED V3. 1 1 B 

The last version of UEO to be put into the PD^ MEO is basically a sample sequencer for arranging samples 
Into tunes. Although a bit difficult to use with a TV (the writing is a b^t small) It can at least be used wJth 
MtDI instrumentSp via a suitable interface. 

« NUKE! VI. 2B 

This program was written to combat the problem of disk-validator viruses (viruses which hide In the dlsk- 
valldator file commonly found on data dtsks). Can find and hill the Saddam and the ROLE virus, and will 
spot new ones too.

7 ACC ASSEJVIBLER V 1 

Although not a new program (it actuaiiy uses the rather old A68K assembler), this is quite a vFabte offer- 
ing- It puts a text editor, assembler and linker onto one disk. Not as good as commercial assemblers, but 
reasonable for learning about programming in machine code. 

8 PROTRACKER VI .2 

The music program for amateurs (and a few protesslonals too), ProTrocker 1.2 is the latest In a long, tong 
line of similar programs ending in -Tracker. Although slightly easier lo pick up than MED, IE can't cope 
with MIDI Instruments. 

9 NORTHG VI .3 

The chance of getting a full version of the C language In PD? Ves. and not only thai, but a relatively 
bug free one el that! North C has become so popular that there's a special three disk manual for it in 
the PD. and some C tutorlat books on C even have notes about the differences between this and 
the commercial LaUice C. 

1 O IMOD RRO VI .9 

There's a host of music modules in the PD. With this program you can set up your own cobeclion of per- 
sonal favourites. Mod Pro can read SMU5. old NoiseTracker and current SoundTracker modules, as well 
as MED modules. Then you can save the resultant file and listen to the music just by clicking on an icon. 
User friendly too. 



SPRITE BANK EDITOR 2 

D^JA VU LP040 

This one is aimed squarely at AMOS pnjgramnwrs, 
lis ii miliiv for loading in sprite hunks frimi ihiii pro- 
■.■i.iiiK:md rearranging riitm aL'cording it* vouriiis^e. 

i-nr insiiince. \up|-hi^L- yuu have a ailkciion ni' 
AMOS ^p^ite^, kn you neod lo delete ihc firsr and last 
live sprites, and then reverse the order. This i.s noi an 
easy job if you're just using Sprirt^X (the included 
sprite t!diior) but it's a diHJdlc wi[h this program. 

It's aKn a yixnl iite;i \o use SM2 to cheek iliai you 
haveni Austtd space and dupiitaled some sprites. A 
utiliiv thai ni^ AMOS pjogranmier ■'hnu^d be viiihout. 
unlt'NS>ouve wriiienyouro'An version of course. 



MBSG206 

At ioiiu Ijsi. tile llisi PD ,"^D Cmistnieiion Kii rears ii\ 
ugly head, WnMi-lmuh looks bland - Jo noi adjust yiiur 
mag, it's suppo'vL'd lo li>ok like thai. The plui is the 
standard 3DCK. v^artle: "save the world in an hour by 
wandering around ailleciing the keys and shooting the 
hiid guys'. In this eiive. rhe lime limit is set by the 
Josiiua missile, \\hith is due lo be launehed and 
di-'siro) mankind 4J^XI sect'rtds after the game siaris. 

You've seen one 3DCK game. yini^L- ^ecif em j|l, 
iijNing .said that. I did find it enjoyable, bui It's not 
easy - it takes some puzzling to work out how to leave 
llio Tirst level. Freescape fans and those who have 
nevcf seen such a game only. I'm afraid. 




As promisedx Wastelandi iooki a \iU\e diill, but all the 
pifiiling more tlian makes up for it.
